Inquiry #4: ITEM #11, CONCRETE BARRIER-TRANSITION:
Please forgive the nature of this inquiry, but what is the purpose & expense of this project? Plans call for removal and replacement of (17) locations of relatively new Transition Concrete Barrier at median bridge approaches. Most of these locations appear to be in very good condition. However, it is the old End Blocks on the bridge wingwalls are spalling and in poor shape.

Plan sheet #8 states “Retrofit End Block (Varies)”. The only work shown there is to cut through the existing #6 slip dowels. Is this the only work on the decrepit Bridge Railing End Blocks?

Plan sheets #8, 9 & 10 do not show an existing Type 60 Barrier End Anchor (A76B) to be removed. Are there existing Barrier End Anchors to be removed?

Details shown on sheets #8, 9 & 10 call for “Sawcut and remove 3” min. wide X 2” min. deep AC/PCC and replace with Rapid setting concrete” on both the median and traffic sides of the existing Transitions. Presumably, this is to avoid spalling of the AC/PCC. Is it really the intent of the Engineer to cut & remove sections of the PCC Approach Slabs?

Plan sheets #1, 3, 4 & 8 indicate that there is work on Stockton Channel Viaduct, Br.No.29-0176L. Plan sheet #6 only shows work on Br.No.29-176R. What is correct?

As state in a previous Bid Inquiry, Barrier Transition details on sheets 8, 9 & 10 do not show any new rebar. Is rebar required in the new construction?

Inquiry #5: ITEM #10, CONCRETE BARRIER-REPAIR:
Plan sheets #6 & 11 call for repair of the Crash Cushion Backup Block at the NB Pershing Avenue off-ramp. There is no damage as detailed on sheet #11 at the existing location in the field. Is this the correct location?
