Q1)Section 86-610d list to clean and paint Department-furnished Model 334LC changeable message sign cabinets and back and sides of Department furnished message sign. My understanding is that the sign is new and furnished by the department. Is this referring to touch up paint for these items or a complete paint job?

A1)Per current contract documents, “sign cabinets and back and sides of Department-furnished changeable message sign” should be “clean(ed) and paint(ed)". 13Apr16
