  Q:08/26/05

 Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Section 4, Page 75: "Beginning of work,
time of completion, and liquidated damages."

Question=I see that if the project isn't completeted after 45 working days,
liquidated damages will begin.  45 working days is 9 weeks, but the lead
time for the Traffic Signal Standards is 18 weeks after they are ordered.
That doesn't even include the time for the 8.3 Weld process.  Is 45 working
days correct?

  • Please refer to section 4.  BEGINNING OF WORK, TIME OF COMPLETION AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES of the Special provision, which states:  "The Contractor shall begin work within 120 calendar days after the contract has been approved by the Attorney General or the attorney appointed and authorized to represent the Department of Transportation."
