Inquiry #5: Storm Drain systems 21 and 26 require the installation of a new 24" storm drain system along the existing type 60 barrier. The center of the pipe is called out to be anywhere from 1.3' to 2.2' left or right of the center of the existing type 60 barrier. With the trenching required for pipeline installation, you would need to dig under the median barrier, which is not feasible. Can Caltrans either shift the pipeline over several feet or provide items to remove and replace the barrier in the locations of storm drain systems 21 and 26.

Inquiry #23: Plan sheets PR1-PR9 provide layouts of plants/Trees to be removed throughout the project. These plans do not show any trees or bushes to be removed from 178+40-191+75. This is significant because sound wall 3 is shown to be constructed in this location. After further review there appears to be numerous large eucalyptus trees in direct conflict with the proposed sound wall 3. Will the State please quantify the trees to be removed in this location, and amend the PR sheets to reflect the change?
