Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= 9 4011108 REPLACE CONCRETE PAVEMENT (RAPID STRENGTH CONCRETE) Plan Sheet 8 

Question= Note 3 on RSP P8 states that "Side forms shall be used where edge of pavement is adjacent to asphalt concrete."  Section 40 of the Standard Specifications requires that the base width of side forms be 80% of pavement thickness (0.6' in this instance).  This will require removal and replacement of approximately 1' of the existing shoulder.  Is this the State's intention?  Are edge drains present at replace concrete pavement locations on this project?

  • Please bid per the current contract documents.
