Subject: CSXT Required Track Clearance Type: Proposal
Question Date: 7/15/2020 2:39:44 PM
Reference CSXT letter dated October 2, 2019 Item 2) states that during the performance of the work, temporary construction clearances of 23'-0" vertically above the top of rail and 25'-0" horizontally from the centerline of a track shall be maintained to any form of work, falsework or temporary obstruction unless otherwise authorized by CSXT. Based on the existing clearances shown on the plans and observed on site, the work cannot be prosecuted without infringement into the above clearance requirements. Will VDOT get authorization from CSXT to allow the work?  
Answer   Date: 7/16/2020 2:12:45 PM
No, VDOT will not obtain any additional authorization in this regard. The Contractor shall not place any scaffolding or other equipment and materials that they cannot remove to provide full clearance for train passage or otherwise as directed by the flagger or watchperson service.

Please note that on sheet 1 of 8 on Structure 17929, the vertical clearance shown from Top of Rail to bottom of beam is 22'-3", 9" less than the CSXT required clearance of 23'-0". Distance from center line of track to face of pier 1 column shown is 16'-0" and to face of pier 2 column shown is 14'-3", both less than the CSXT required clearance of 25'-0". Similar horizontal clearances from center line of tracks shown on sheet 1 of 11 on structure 18067 are 21'-4" to center line of pier 1 and 21'-7" to center line of pier 2, both less than the CSXT required clearance of 25'-0". Will VDOT get authorization from CSXT to allow the work since the required clearances do not exist? Will they allow work outside the train envelope but within the clearance limit?

On page 5 of project proposal under Bridge Superstructure Widening/Repair Type BE, it states "Repair Type BE when combined with Repair Type F, W, or WF as applicable covers full payment of a repair at a beam end, no separate Type BE repair will be made." However, Schedule of Items Bid Items 0150 and 0160 show the total number of Type BE repairs shown on the plans, whether or not they are combined with a Type F, W, or WF. Total wuantity of Type F, W, and WF shown in the Schedule of Items also match the quantities shown on the plans. Please clarify  
Answer   Date: 7/16/2020 2:12:19 PM
The Repair Type BE shown in the details for Repairs Type W, F and WF is for reference only to better describe how the repairs will fit together. The Repair Type BE will be installed and paid at the bid unit price only at the locations identified in the plans for Repair Type BE.

For clarity, please review: Bridge 17929 - Type BE identified on plan sheets 3 of 8 and 4 of 8 shows 27 Type BE Repairs and matches the quantity of 27 EA in the Schedule of Items in the proposal. Bridge 18067 - Type BE identified on plan sheets 3,4,5, and 6 of 11 shows 52 Type BE Repairs and matches the quantity of 52 EA in the Schedule of Items in the proposal. Please confirm the Repair Type BE to be installed and paid at the bid unit price is 27 EA for Structure 17929 and 52 EA for Structure 18067.
