Inquiry #5: In your Response to Inquiry #2 you state "day time and night time closures are permitted". The Charts show only 5 hrs Monday thru Thursday and 3 hrs on Friday. Taking into consideration the time to place all of the traffic control devices the work windows will shrink significantly causing inadequate production. In short, the daytime closure hours will not aid in completing a 50 WD project. Will the State Reconsider the 50 WD time period to a more reasonable time frame such as 120 WD?

Inquiry #6: We concur with the previous inquiries from the other contractors that the 50 WD requirement is simply unrealistic. As such, a prudent contractor has no choice but to include approx. $245K to cover potential LD's in our proposal. It is strongly requested and recommended that the Dept. issue an addendum which increases the WD to not less than 120 WD.
