Inquiry #3: The cost to replace panels can drastically change based on the location of the panels. The plans show the number of panels to be replaced in a half-lane mile but the plans don't say if any of the panels to be replaced are connected or if they are half panels. Example: Between PM 7.0 - 7.5 No. of Panels to be replaced is 4. Is this 4 whole panels of 8 half panels? Are the 4 panels to be replaced separated by 1,000 feet or 10 feet? Please add the start and stop station of each panel to be replaced.
