Inquiry #9: Lane closure charts K1 & K2 only allow 6 hrs at night. Spec section 12-4.02C mentions the "full width of the traveled way" to be open if no work activities are occuring. Is the "traveled way", considered the "open lanes" as shown on staging plans SC-1 thru SC-4?

Are the stages shown, set with the delineators, to be semi-permanent or do they need to be removed every day and reset for the next shift?
