Inquiry #3: There is a temporary traffic signal to be installed on this project. However, that does not completely negate the need for traffic control during construction. Did Caltrans intend to eliminate a Traffic Control item for this project? We will still need to provide traffic control when doing the following operations:

Set & remove K Rail
Exc & lay culverts across roadway
Off haul of all excavated dirt
Overlay roadway at end of project
Striping of final paved roadway

For these reasons, we would like to see a Traffic Control item on this project.

Response #1:Submitted for consideration.

Response #2:Traffic control is not needed as it is already covered and fully compensated under special provisions, Section 10-1.20, "Traffic Control System for Lane Closure".
