Inquiry #3: 1:Based on CalTran's standard specifications a 144"x90" C47C(CA) sign is to be mounted on Laminated Wood Box Posts. 2015 CalTrans standard specifications section 82-3.02D states that these are a department furnished item. Where will the contractor be able to pick up the Laminated Wood Box Posts from and will the contractor be required to return the Laminated Wood Box Posts upon removal?

2:Will the C47C(CA) signs be required to be "NEW" signs upon installation on this project or will used signs in acceptable condition be accepted for use? If used signs in acceptable condition can be used what is the determining factor for "ACCEPTABLE CONDITION"?

Inquiry #4: Will Caltrans consider allowing additional time to pave back the RHMA-O after cold milling and crack fill operations? The current specification requires a same day pave back. This is not only highly unproductive but can create issues in regards to smoothness.
