Inquiry #7: Why is item 6 calling for temporary traffic stripe tape?Is it the intention to install temporary traffic stripe tape after the removal of the traffic striping prior to the PCC grinding? If so the temporary tape would likely cause problems with the PCC grinding equipment or would have to be removed prior to the PCC grinding. It seems that a temporary painted traffic stripe would be more appropriate for this application.
