Inquiry #1: Please reference Bid Item 31 and special provision 10-1.33. Would it be possible to use ABSORB 350 alternative crash cusion for this project. The Adiems are not as readily available, nor are the parts if one becomes damaged. Additionally these are typically bought per project and will likely cost a great deal more.
