Inquiry #1: We request that the state include Cold In-Place Recycling with Foamed Asphalt (CIR-FA) section 30-6 as an alternative to Cold In-Place Recycling with Emulsion section 30-5 on contract No 03-0G9904.

CIR-FA is a practical alternative to CIR with Emulsion and there are several companies that currently have the resources to produce CIR-foam; by including it as an option it would allow for a more competitive bidding environment on this contract.
