Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= #18 Pavement Marker (retroreflective) Plan Page PDQ-1

Question= The special Provisions state the following- Post mile marker is measured and paid for as pavement marker (retroreflective).  There is nothing in the plans regarding post mile markers.  My question is how do we as contractors bid this item to include post mile markers with no information on how many there are or what specifications are required? The special provisions do not reference any section of the standard plans or specs.

  • Please refer to plan sheet Q-2 for the quantity and location of the post mile markers.  Also refer to Standard Plan A73B for details.
