Submit new inquiry for this project


Inquiry #1: 1) IOEI attempted to visit the site on 11/17/17 per the information provided in the drawings mile marker etc.. and the slopes seems to have minimal erosion. The concrete lined ditch did not have any sediment. Has this project been completed by the existing developer?
2) Will Caltrans hold a pre-bid site visit to confirm ingress and egress to the project?

Inquiry #2: What is the intent for the main ingress/egress into the site? Is the only access to the site from Las Flores or will two way traffic on Tuna Canyon be permitted? Can a new access road be cut or must existing paths be utilized? Can the existing paths be improved enough to permit 10-wheeler and concrete truck passage? Do these paths need to be returned to pre-existing condition when complete?
Inquiry submitted 11/28/2017

Response #1:- The intent for the main ingress/egress is to access the job site easier. Since the slope is too steep, the contractor can drive to the site via the ingress/egress.

- Tuna Canyon Rd is a much closer path to the ingress/egress, but it is an one-way street. Since there isn?t too much traffic on the route, I think they would allow a temporary two-way access.

- We don?t see any where you can cut to create a new access path. And since we had an agreement with the owner of where/how to access to the job site, we must use the existing path.

- Can the contractor pump the concrete at a distance of 200?+? If not then they will have to traverse on the access path. The path is about 12?-13? wide, so the contractor can improve the path to accommodate the vehicles.

- There is no agreement to return the path to pre-existing condition, but we cannot just destroy everything on the contractor?s path.

Inquiry #3: Hello,

How is the 1500 CY of import borrow to be constructed against the existing 2:1 slope? Section A-A shown on sheet C-2 of the plans does not indicate any specific treatment or preparation of the existing ground before placement of the 0'-1.5' of imported borrow.

If preparation of the existing slope requires benching, what would be the construction methodology, specification, and under what bid item would it be paid? Benching of a 2:1 slope and designated area would require a substantial cut and fill volume that does not appear to be accounted for in any of the bid items.

Inquiry submitted 11/29/2017

Response #1:The slope is still in good shape. There are gullies that carried the sediment onto the ditch, therefore, the imported borrow will be used to fill in the gap. It is not intend to cut the slope and reconstruct according to our standard. The main purpose of this project is to repair the damaged ditch.
