Inquiry #1: Will Caltrans consider eliminating the requirement for placing HMA within 3 days of cold planning on the initial 0.17' grind over the entire roadway? After the initial grind, the contractor is still required to remove and replace 0.25' of failed areas and crack treat the existing surface prior to the final 0.1' RHMA-G overlay. If held to a 3 day window, the contractor would be required to mobilize multiple times for grinding, repairing failed areas, crack treatment, and RHMA-G overlay. Additionally, there would be significant standby charges by the asphalt rubber plant as the final overlay would not happen in consecutive days.

Inquiry #2: For item 10 Prepaving Grinding Day, the measurement and payment section is not explicit in the definition of a "day". Please clarify if a "day" constitutes an 8-hour shift or does a "day" constitute the available lane closure hours?
Inquiry submitted 01/03/2018

Response #1:The contract unit of measure for "Prepaving grinding day" is each day. Day is defined in the standard specifications section 1-1.07B, "Glossary", as "24 consecutive hours running from midnight to midnight; calendar day." The number of hours worked during the day is not a factor in the payment method.
