Inquiry

   Q:04/08/08
   R:04/09/08

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Item 10 on Contract number 11-285304

Question=Caltrans does not require the use of the self loading Continous Micro Paver machine? The use of this equipment has been adopted in most specs. Why is Caltrans not specifying the right equipment? For use with this product.Check your past Micro Surfacing projects. District 11 did have this equipment in past projects.

  • This contract does not strictly require the use of self loading continuous microsurfacing pavers, due to the narrow and winding nature of the roadway and close proximity of the cross streets/ private driveways. The use of continuous microsurfacing pavers where applicable, is not prohibited on this contract.
