  Q:06/10/10
R:06/14/10

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= 1- # 10 Remove Painted Stripe, 251,000 LF 2- PLNSHT #8, PDQ1 Summary ( RemoveTraffic Stripe)and Traffic Stripe Summary


Question= Item Shows 251,000 LF of striping removal. Summary sheet shows Remove DET 22 (centerline). The controlling on this project amounts to only 1/3 of the quantity or appx 83,670 LF . Which is the correct amt and How does the removal equate to the stripe details 27B?

 

  • The Standard Specification Section section 15-2.06 "Measurement" indicates that triple traffic stripes will be measured as 3 traffic stripes (2 yellow and 1 black). This removal quantity is mainly for detail 22. Detail 27B is just being refreshed and painted over.

  Q:06/15/10
R:06/16/10

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Bid Item 1 Small Business Report


Question= If you are paying for submitting the Small Business Utilization Report, and giving 5% bid preference for DBE/UDBE utilization why aren't you giving the 5% Bid Preference for the utilization of Small Businesses? It's inconsistent and unfair not to do so.

  • Please bid per current contract documents.
