   Q:04/21/08

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Bid item #15 - Special Provisions
Section 10-1.22. 

Question=The specifications indicate that "the aggregates for RHMA-G must comply with the 1/2" grading".  This is in contradiction to the revised Section 39 where it states that the maximum aggregates size should be 1/3 of the mat thickness.  According to the plan sheets (X-1) the mat thickness is only .8' (1") so the maximum aggregate size should be no greater than 3/8".
Please clarify.

  • 1/2" maximum aggregate size for the RHMA-G is an nSSP, that is approved specifically for this contract.

Question=The Notice to Contractors specifies 05/02/2008 for bid opening which falls on a Friday.  Is the State really opening bids on a Friday or was this a mistake?

  • The bid opening date is correct.  The bids will be opened on 05/02/2008 at 2 PM.  The State is bid opening some contracts on Fridays to reduce the number of contracts bid opening on Thursdays in Irvine.
