Inquiry #2: 1. Spec section 70-10.03D requires that the contractor “repair all damage at no cost to the State”. Caltrans has specified the hammering approach for placing the casing. Will the contractor be liable for any settlement of the embankment due to the hammering vibrations?

2. We have completed several similar jobs where preventing the embankment from pushing out at the far side required structural measures. These were much more extensive than the suggested blasting mats. Could the contractor on this job utilize a non-hammering method that would better prevent roadway settlement and ensure embankment stability?

Inquiry submitted 01/13/2014

Response #1:1. As per the special provisions, the contractor will be responsible for controlling his means and methods to protect the existing roadway and embankment, and/or repair any settlement damage caused by the installation of the project.

2. The bid should include whatever methods the contractor believes is required to ensure slope stability. Any damage done will be repaired by the contractor at no additional cost to Caltrans.
