Inquiry #2: In Special Provisions section 12-4.02C(3)(j), Chart No. J1 “Complete Ramp Closure Hours” details nightly off-ramp closures for the project. Remarks note 3 seems to be in conflict with the legend. Can you confirm that “C” in the table represents a time in which the entire northbound off-ramp to 2nd Street can be shutdown to traffic and that no lanes on that off-ramp have to be open to live traffic?

Inquiry #3: In the Information Handout, page 6 of the Materials Information section has a paragraph for As-built Foundation Data. This paragraph mentions as-built plans from the original bridge dated 1940, and two additional contracts dated 1951 and 1964.

Inquiry #4: Can Caltrans provide any further information in regards to the existing bridge dimensions, depths, and location in relation to the new structure? Existing abutment dimensions are especially of importance as that will influence what type and depth of cofferdam will be required to remove them and install the new abutment.
