Inquiry #5: Bidder Inquiry answer #4 indicates that there will be "grouted" joints in color of Canyon Stone. According to the expansion joint detail on C-1, it specifies "expanded polystyrene." It does not specify grout or a silicone joint filler in addition to the expanded polystyrene. Please clarify. Also, the Federal Standard Number 36495 is "light gray" according to the color chart. Please clarify.

Response #1:Per sheet C-1, the "Typical 'Cobble' Layout" plan view of the C-1 Construction Detail callout shows:


Please match the joint filler with federal standard number 36495.

Also, per Construction Details sheet C-1, use Federal Standard Number 36495 (the color chart is correct, federal standard color website lists 36495 as "Light Gray").
