Inquiry #3: To enable correct comparison of Contractor performed inertial profile baseline to Agency Supplemental info, the same semi-permanent start and stop points must be used. Please confirm CALTRANS will provide semi-permanent markers at all start and stop points coinciding with those used by Agency for developing their data.

Response #1:Submitted for consideration.

Response #2:No, Caltrans will not provide semi-permanent reference points. Per section 36-3.01C(5), you are required to set semi-permanent reference points.

For purposes of data comparison, you are required to perform an EXIST inertial profile run and subsequently a FINAL inertial profile run (per section 36-3.01C(6)(b)).

Comparison of contractor EXIST inertial profile run versus the Department provided profile runs is for information only.

Please bid per the current contract documents.
