Inquiry #1: As there is no traffic control chart provided for Winters Road, could a temporary traffic control signal be installed and used continuously for the duration of the project instead of flaggers/Automated Flagger Assistance Device (AFAD) to eliminate moving k-rail back and forth every workday?

If temporary traffic control signals are allowed, does note 1 on sheet THD-1 still apply?

Inquiry submitted 01/17/2023

Response #1:Submitted for consideration.
Response posted 01/20/2023

Response #2:The bidders should bid according to the plans and specifications. Sheet THD-1 requires traffic handling 24/7 on Winters Road.
