  Q:05/28/10

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Items 33-35, Modify Signal - Section 10-1.20 Petroleum Contaminated Material


Question=1. Will CalTrans make the Material Information handout referenced on page 83 in the specifications available to the bidder on-line?

  • Please use the link "Information Handout" above.



2. Type DC material excavation referenced on page 85, 1st paragraph. Where are the limits shown on the plans?

  • DC material will be encountered during the excavation for the Cast-In-Drilled-Hole concrete pile foundation as stated in Paragraph 4 of Section 10-1.20 of the Special Provisions.


3. Where are the designated Type DC material stockpile locations?

  • The Designated Stockpile locations will be determined by the Engineer.


4. Please clarify the circumstances on page 85, paragraph 8, additional Type DC material excavated outside of locations designated, the portion that states "...or directed by the Engineer, for the Contractor's convenience..." would apply.

  • Yes if additional excavation is done for Contractor's convenience for whatever reason, testing and proper disposal will be required and no additional compensation will be made.


5. In consideration that projects should be bid based upon known quantities and materials, would it not be advisable to separate payment for handling Type DC material and groundwater from the Modify Signal item? Compensation for this work at Force Account would seem to be a fiscally responsible alternative.

  • Please bid per current contract documents.
