Inquiry #3: Item 14 Thermoplastic Traffic Stripe (Enhanced Wet Night Visibility) is being treated as if it is being applied as a sprayable item under this description. The following is a current project on I-5 in District 2 and is an example of how the bid items for .090 Themoplastic (Enhanced Wet Night Visibility) stripe are normally bid. The reason is because sprayable is paid differently than an extruded traffic stripe
