Inquiry No.
Reference Section 5-1.06, STATE MINING AND RECLAMATION ACT; Does the material available at the Campo Reservation meet compliance?

The materials available at the Campo Reservation are exempt per the addenda for the requirements of AB 3098.

On the summary of quantities page that includes the totals of traffic striping and pavement marking totals. It includes removal of both paint and thermoplastic striping. Does C-DOT really want removal of all paint striping?

Bid it as you see it.

I am a WBE truck broker and, as such, our contractors use us for 20% of the DBE participation amount.  There is no provision for this listed in Section H.  Does this mean that this is excluded on this contract?

Yes, the previous regulations allowed a 20% credit for non-DBE certified truckers, this credit will no longer be allowed per the requirements of Section 2-1.02 DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISES (DBE), of the Special Provisions. 
The requirements of Part 26, Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations entitled "Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Department of Transportation Financial Assistance Programs" will apply to all Caltrans Federal Aid Projects.
