Response #2:
Section 26-1.03B, Subgrade, states that, “Immediately before spreading AB, the subgrade must comply with the compaction and elevation tolerance for the material involved and be free from loose or extraneous material.” In other words, since the AB is to be compacted to 95%, the subgrade must also be compacted to 95%.
