Inquiry #2: The Barrier Rail drawings are poorly detailed in regards to the Drill and Bonds. The Typ Section (titled Type 85 (mod)) on sht 38 only calls out the #6 drill and bonds, total 5 ea per post. However the Longitudinal Section on sht 39 is clearly indicating vertical bars penetrating the existing deck along the entirety of the Bottom Curb Beam. Furthermore, sht 33 seems to be indicating drill and bonds but rather than call them out, it simply refers back to the sht 38, 39 drawings.

Inquiry #3: Please indicate clearly if Epoxy Rebar for Barriers and Pedestrian Railing Curb is to be epoxy coated. Section 83 of the specs seems to indicate that the rebar is all epoxy coated but the Drawings make no mention of epoxy coated rebar (typically CalTrans designers call out epoxy coated rebar in the Drawings).
