Inquiry #1: Item 41 Permanent Erosion Control Establishment Work / Lump Sum
This Item asks for a lump sum bid. Section 21-3 reads that establishment work starts after permanent erosion control work has been completed. The engineer notifies when the establishment works period starts and furnishes weekly statements regarding the number of days credited to the establishment period.
This work consist of weekly inspections of the project site for any deficiencies in erosion control.
Please clarify the following questions to provide a basis for a lump sum bid.

1.) Inspections conducted by whom? ( General Contractor?) (Erosion control contractor?) ( Cal Trans?)
2.) How many weeks for inspection? What is the duration of this Item? A time frame must be provided so as to determine a Lump Sum bid.
3.) Does the Lump Sum bid represent the weekly inspections only? Section 21-3.04 Indicates, work preformed is change order work. Will this be on a bid based on repairs needed or time and materials?
Thank you,
Scott Miller

Inquiry #2: In reviewing the staging plans for this project we have questions concerning stage 3 construction. Within stage 3 there appears to be the need for several sub stages to accommodate traffic flow during construction. In addition, there appears to be the need for temporary paving, striping and signage not show on the plans during these sub stages.

Will Caltrans provide additional staging plans which detail how to handle traffic during this work?

How will the temporary paving, striping and signage needed during these sub-stages be paid for?
