Q4) Quantities for traffic stripe removal do not seem to reflect standard specs per sec. 15-2.06. Quantities seem to be based on detail, not stripe.
A4) Removal Thermoplastic Traffic Stripe Quantities for this project do reflect standard specs sec. 15-2.06. ...When stripes are measured by the linear foot (in our case linear meter), double or triple traffic stripes will be measured as 2 or 3 traffic stripes, respectively, and 6-inch (150mm) wide or 8-inch (200mm) wide traffic stripes will be measured as 1.5 or 2 traffic stripes , respectively. Unless there is some other issues, Removal Thermoplastic Traffic Stripe Quantities are correct.
