Inquiry #1: The construction schedule is extremely tight. We are seeking an addendum adding at least 20 working days. Completing this project (28.5 miles) looks doubtful without adding dollars to cover LD’s. We believe it to be prudent to add some time.

Inquiry #3: Item 11 Remove Thermoplastic Pavement Markings is calling out 2,460 SQYD. I feel is an error because the plan page Q-3 calls it out as SQFT. Is this an error and should it be bid as SQFT?

Inquiry #4: Inquiry #1 - Again we must ask for more time. The schedule is very tight. As you know, LD's are sitting at $3,000 per day. All this does is set up problems with the State's RE. One additional month shouldn't hurt. Give our crews and your RE a fighting change to get the job off to the right start. 40 working days is nuts...

Inquiry #5: We need to know the gradation specifications for the 3/8" RHMA-SP-G. They aren't listed in the special provisions, and don't exist in the current Section 39 standards.

Inquiry #7: On other contracts performed by our competition on Route 26; the State has allowed paving of Intersections (with dense mix) prior to mainline rubber paving. Can the State modify their Special Provision to allow all the Contractors to pave in this same manner and not give our competition an advantage?
Inquiry submitted 01/08/2014

Response #1: No revision to the specifications will be made. Bidders should submit their bids based on the contract requirements.

Special Provisions Section 39-1.03I "Shoulders, Medians, and Other Road Connections" states, "Until the adjoining through lane's top layer has been paved, do not pave the top layer of: 4. Road connections."
Response posted 01/09/2014




Inquiry #8: Request additional working days.

Paving intersections prior to the mainline as done on other similar projects makes sense also. Request special provisons allow this prctice to save working days.

One mile limit on a reversing control is not realistic on this very windy road. Request a 2 mile limit.
