Verify that the surcharge placed on LPNB and LPSB will take 200 days for settlement settlement of 5”. It is 30 days where no surcharge of 5".

It will save me a lot of time even if we decide to change a few things. UDOT has looked at this project for a long time and I am sure a lot of challenges with this segment have been worked out in your phasing plan. Posted to the website. 1. Yes- that was the intent of that requirement- the First: Special Provision section 02831S "Retaining Walls-Alternate Systems" Section Contractor can have one wall company for single- 1.3B states that only one MSE wall system will be allowed for the contractor-selected stage panel walls and another for 2-stage walls. alternate system............We are assuming that this restriction applies only to the MSE systems as defined in 02833S and 02834S and does not apply to the Two-Stage MSE walls, Section 02837S. That is each segment may have two firms supplying the MSE systems, one, either 02833S or 02934S and the other under 02837S. 2.We are inclined to allow an acceptable 2-stage ARES system, provided it has been used Second: Tensar designs and supplies a two-stage wall system. Therefore we ask that a successfully for other DOT’s and that the details of provision for Two-Stage MSE.........and Geogrid Reinforcing Elements be included in the it are acceptable to us. Please see new spec. bid package. 3.We would be willing to consider full-height panels for 2-stage walls only on the Project. But in doing so, be aware that the panel appearance Third: One of our options for the 2-stage walls is the use of full height panels for the must still be consistent with the selected pattern facing system. This minimizes the number of connection pieces required for attaching the developed by the Legacy aesthetic people. panel to the MSE volume thereby minimizing the number of corrosion points. Will this facing be acceptable? Requested At one time there was a gant chart on the website that gave a timeline for the Legacy project including bid dates, mobilizing, d construction timelines, etc. Where can I find that now? On the web, under the PS&E information. Question Response Segment 3 Special Provisions Section 02831S Retaining Wall-Alternate Systems. Section 1.1.A in part states:........Contractor will be required to select from the following wall systems,................ Option G-MSE Wall-Mesa Retaining Wall (refer to Section 02836S)On plan sheet R-487, 1 of 7, General Notes Item 5. Use Keystone Manor Wall System. This specificity of wall type effectively precludes Mesa from bidding on this work. Selecting a proprietary design to the exclusion of other systems based solely on aesthetic issues should not be allowed. You are effectively eliminating competitive bidding for the supply of that bid item. Please review this specification to ensure that the competitive bid I agree with your issue- a proprietary wall system process is not compromised. Thank you for your consideration. Please call me if you should not have been specified. The spec will be have any questions. changed in an addendum. The Project’s “Special Provision” section for ATMS Conduit calls for the Bridge Parapet Multi-Cell Duct to be four-way Schedule 40 PVC with minimum 1-1/4” ID with factory installed spacers and extended bell ends. We suggest OMNI’s OPTI-COM Multi-Duct system which is a 20 foot, 4” PVC conduit with bell-ends and comes in Schedule 40, 80 Yes, this product is fine.

Question Response The expansion joints would connect and be part of the OPTI-COM Multi-Duct System where needed with no adhesive required. To increase the cost effectiveness and because the OPTI-COM Multi-Duct System provides added protection since the 4- 1-1/4” HDPE innerducts are enclosed within PVC conduit and the 4” PVC conduit will be encased in concrete within the bridge parapet, may the outer clad PVC conduit be C-Duct with a minimum wall thickness of .15” versus a Schedule 40’s outer clad with a min wall The C-Duct (4" thin-walled outer conduit/cladding) thickness of .237”. AT&T uses a tremendous amount of OMNI’s C-Duct OPTI-COM multi- should be acceptable because it is only protecting duct for fiber installation and it doesn’t encase it within cement.

However the details are not typical but related to one proprietary wall system which is not on the approved UDOT products list. There is also no information on the minimum embedment required for the wall. We would ask that the standard details for the UDOT modular block wall systems replace the sheet shown in the plans. Please call me if you have any questions. The details shown on sheet 7 of 7 refer to a system that is manufactured only by Keystone. It is also not the approved Genesis System. In order to allow competitive bidding the bid documents must refer to the approved modular block systems and detail a wall facing which is not the approved wall facing. I would be happy The embedment depts for the walls are on the to discuss this with Jim if he would be OK with that. typical sections Requested lump sum quantity for Environmental Controls. Item drafted and posted on the website. Question Response You had a few questions regarding the spec for Crash Cushions 02873M. Your first question was for finding Federal Color paints. You can take the federal color number to any paint supplier and they can tell you the equivalent paint. In this case we are using self weathering steel for our roadside elements, so the paint should match the self- weathering steel. You next question regarding three-part system. This is referring to a three-part coating system. This is described in the UDOT Standard Spec 09972 Painting for Structural Steel.

It is not something that can be decided without additional information about the precast system. And since the request is coming from a fabricator, there may not even be any interest from the Contractors, who are the ones who really make the decision on whether to use it. For these reasons, we suggest that the Contractors bid the plans as detailed (cast- in-place) and if a Contractor wants to use a Currently this is shown as a CIP Post Tensioned Box structure.

Question Response Regarding the Cleaning and Repainting of Structural Steel, Section 09991M pg 1 of 1 Note 3 states"Contractor is responsible for handling and moving fabricated girders, diaphragms and bolsters for UDOT inspection and making necessary repairs" Item "E" states Method of payment is to be by the hour for repairs. Cost of equipment to handle girders for repairs is to be included in the hourly price" Question - UDOT does not state when the hourly rate begins to occur & be paid for. At the time the girder, diaphragm or bolster is picked up by the crane and taken out of storage or when the repair actually begins. Note: Since we do not know how much repair will be required on a given piece, The method of payment will be clarified in the the hourly rate needs to apply from the time the piece is picked up and taken out of Addendum #2. The handling is taken from the storage because UDOT may not want any repair done on a given piece and the hourly price and is left in the Structural Steel contractor would not get paid for the time to move it position it and wait for it to be (Owner Furnished). This was already in the M&P inspected. All of the cranes & equipment etc will be required to remain mobilized whether for owner furnished steel.

Please clarify where we use each the Pop-Up Bubbler Assembly detail for Segments size pop- up. 1, 2, and 3 requires a 6-inch pop-up height. Question Response Yes, the materials testing on the project will be done the same as all other projects we do. UDOT crews will perform all tests. The HMA will be the Paired - T testing which means we will randomly tests the material and if we correlate, all is well. It would be up to the contractor to hire someone for How will the Quality Control be handled for this project? Will it function as normal UDOT the testing but on the projects I've been on, the jobs where UDOT will perform the testing and inspection on embankments, base course, contractor generally hires an independent agency, etc, and the contractor can provide for an independent agency to perform testing for but not necessarily, sometimes they do it HMA? I'd assume that with a large project such as this with quality bonus potential that themselves. They usually hire (or do themselves) the contractor would want to have an independent agency working with UDOT to assure testing on about all the material (embankment, a quality project.
