Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Items 9, 10, 11 temp. delin.

Can not determine at what point during construction, that the temp. delin. items will be required.  This appears to be a grind and replace job and typically all delin. is placed on final AC.  This info. is somewhat necessary for mobilization requirements.

  • The purpose of providing the contract item "Temporary Traffic Stripe (Paint)" is for mobilization convenience of the contractor. Per Section  10-1.18  TEMPORARY PAVEMENT DELINEATION of the Special Provisions, at the Contractor's option, temporary removable striping tape listed in "Prequalified and Tested Signing and Delineation Materials" of these special provisions may be used instead of painted temporary traffic stripes.
