||The quantities for Item 14 calculate lower than shown in the Engineer's
Estimate. Please clarify.
Bid it as you you see it.
||Section 4 of the Special provisions states completion before expiration
of 80 working days. However 10-1.06 Maintaining Traffic allows only 14
calendar days at each location. With only three locations this works out
to only 30 working days. How should this be interpreted?
Each location is either the left or the right side of the roadway per each bridge, and work may be done concurrently for completion within the allowed contract time.
