Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=PLAN SHEET 26/66, STAGE 1A, SECTION
A-A,

Question=It is not clear what construction is proposed as "STAGE 1A".  What
is the intent for the cross hatched area in section A-A, stage 1A?  Is that a full depth removal and reconstruction of existing or a cap to match grades with the new lane and shoulder.  If a full depth removal is intended, aggbase and AC would present a timing and compaction challenge; full depth AC would present a heat dissipation challenge; would rapid strength concrete be a backfill option?  If so, what would be and cceptable rapid strength mix? Calcium Chloride, Polarset, Other?

  • Stage 1A is no different and is actually a part of stage 1. Therefore, the same method of construction as Stage 1 would be applicable.
