We consider a class of optimal control problems in which the cost to minimize comprises both a final cost and an integral term, and the data can be discontinuous with respect to the time variable in the following sense: they are continuous w.r.t. t on a set of full measure and have everywhere left and right limits. For this class of Bolza problems, employing techniques coming from viability theory, we give characterizations of the value function as the unique generalized solution to the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi equation in the class of lower semicontinuous functions: if the final cost term is extended valued, the generalized solution to the Hamilton-Jacobi equation involves the concepts of lower Dini derivative and the proximal normal vectors; if the final cost term is a locally bounded lower semicontinuous function, then we can show that this has an equivalent characterization in a viscosity sense.
