Inquiry submitted 03/07/2019

Response #1:The 2018 Standard Specification under 37-3.01C(3)(a) states in the last sentence "Choose a truck mounted mixer-spreader or continuous self-loading mixer spreader." This language was agreed upon by industry and Caltrans in the Rock Products Committee now called the Pavement Materials Partnering Committee, to mean the contractor chooses the type of mixer spreader they use depending on the conditions and length of the pavement project, whether is was a straight alignment or on and off ramps based on their expertise and equipment they are use.
