Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Item 12: CLEARING AND GRUBBING

IT APPEARS AFTER HAVING WALKED THE SITE, THAT THERE IS FENCING THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE CLEARING AND GRUBBING LIMITS ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE A-LINE.  THIS HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED AS A BID ITEM, AND AT PRESENT THIS AFOREMENTIONED FENCING IS KEEPING PETS AND LIVESTOCK FROM ENTERING THE HIGHWAY. IS IT THE STATE'S INTENT THAT THE CONTRACTOR MUST REMOVE AND REPLACE THE EXISTING FENCING OR PERHAPS INSTALL TEMPORARY FENCING UNTIL THE RESIDENTS INSTALL A NEW FENCE?  THERE IS NO BID ITEM FOR FENCE REPLACEMENT IN THE BID PACKAGE.

  • No, any work to install temporary fence/remove/relocate/replace existing private property fences shall be paid for in accordance with Section 4-1.03 of the Standard Specifications and not included in the clearing and grubbing requirements per Section 10-1.23 of the Special Provisions.

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=12. CLEARING AND GRUBBING

SINCE THE CONTRACTOR MUST CLEAR AND GRUB SEVERAL RESIDENT'S FRONT YARDS, IT WOULD BE MOST HELPFUL FOR THE STATE TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE AS TO WHICH PLANTS AND TREES MUST EITHER BE REMOVED OR PROTECTED IN PLACE.

  • As shown on the plans there are 16 "Exist TREES TO REMAIN" and in accordance with Sections 10-1.04 and 10-1.23 of the Special Provisions those trees shall be fully protected by the contractor and included in Item 12. At this time it would be impractical to mark them in the field so close to bid opening but before any work starts the trees to remain will be marked.
