Inquiry #2: 1- Ref Plan Sheets 10,60 and 63-Location # 18 appears to require K Rail and Crash Cusion Modules for 100 Ft + along Travelled Way. Per sheet 10 (C-7) the ETW to face of Anchor block or MBGR varies from 2'-0" t0 9'-6". Standard Plan THD-7 ( Sheet 60) calls for K rail to be set from 4 feet to 8 feet and greater. Seems as though the details here conflict, on the existing shoulder which is any thing less than 6'-0" wide. Will this be reviewed and revised prior to Bid date?

Inquiry #5: 1- Ref Plan Sheets 14-Location # 28 appears to require removal of existing MBGR, constructing new CAB to the Figueroa Street Abutment, but does not call for K Rail or Rapid Strength Concrete. This is inconsistant to other locations shown that have either Rapid Set Concrete or K Rail. Is that what you want? Will this be reviewed and revised prior to Bid date?

Inquiry #6: 1- Please help me locate the "Traffic Handling Details Plan" noted in Traffic Chart # 12, to be able to determine your requirement.

2- Location # 7 appears to be in the area covered by Traffic Chart#1. Traffic Chart #1 appears to be inconsisitant with the number of freeway lanes at Location #7 as there are only two freeway lanes there. Is there another Traffic Chart to use for work at Location #7?
