Inquiry #48: On plan sheet SW-4 sound wall quantities for the project are shown. For sound wall SW 2 the quantity shown is stated at 9,128 SF. After looking over sheet SW-1 the elevation profile shows the length of the wall at 652.30 LF, and in a table directly above the elevation profile it shows elevations for the bottom of the barrier and the elevations for the top of SW 2. When the tops of SW-2 is subtracted from the elevation for the "Bottom of barrier" it is calculated at 14'. 14' x 652'= 9,128 sf. This quantity is overstated as the quantity should be the elevation difference from the top of SW-2 to the "top" of the barrier.
