Subject: Modular Retaining Wall Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/9/2018 5:12:53 PM
The back of the modular retaining wall system extends beyond the benched excavation limits shown in the plans and cross sections, and results in additional excavation. Does this additional area need to be backfilled with Select Material and/or EPS Fill?  
Answer   Date: 11/29/2018 11:59:03 AM
For the additional excavation that is required for the bottom wall modules beyond the benched excavation shown on the Plans, the Contractor shall reuse the existing material. For wall backfill, please see Geotechnical Details on sheets 2A(3) thru 2A(6).  
 
Question Date: 11/12/2018 8:37:20 AM
Please confirm that the distance "B" shown on sheets 126 and 127 of the bridge applies to the entire height of the wall. In other words, please confirm the select material Type 1 or Type 2 incidental to the retaining system is a vertical line based on distance "B", or is what is incidental step in as the stems from the wall panels step in?  
Answer   Date: 11/29/2018 11:59:41 AM
Non-EPS geofoam backfill material used within minimum wall base width (or B min.) and entire wall height is considered incidental to the precast modular retaining wall structure. Refer to Section 5.0 of Precast Modular Retaining Structure Special Provisions and notes in Sheet 126.

Subject: Pier 5 Column Spiral Reinforcin Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/9/2018 9:54:23 AM
Can the #4 CRR I for Pier 5 Column Spirals be changed to individual #4 Hoops with a 1'-11" lap spaced at the pitch spacing of 12"? The #4 CRR I in coil to make spirals is not available at this time.

No it cannot be changed, further a CRR Class I material supplier for the region indicates that there is no availability issue with the #4 for the spirals. .  
 
Subject: PDA Testing Type: Bid Sheet
Question Date: 11/8/2018 3:21:03 PM
Item 1950 quantity is incorrect. There is only 1 test pile at abutment 1 and b, and only 1 test pile at piers 2 and 5.  
Answer   Date: 11/29/2018 12:03:01 PM
On sheet 4 of 127 there are two stars next to the Dynamic Pile Test item.  Please see the double star note on this sheet for an explanation of the additional test locations.  The quantity for item 1950 is correct.  
 
Question Date: 11/30/2018 9:15:15 AM
Does this mean that there are 5 additional PDA tests on the piles or is there another test pile program with additional pile lengths? If an additional test pile program is required, it appears that the quantity for Bid Item 1970 is wrong.  
Answer   Date: 12/4/2018 9:16:13 AM
Plans indicate locations of test piles which also receive dynamic pile testing. These test piles are paid for as driving test for pile (LF) and Dynamic Pile Test (EA). The plan quantity for Dynamic Pile Test (EA) accounts for an additional 4 tests on piles that are not “test piles” as required by the Engineer. There are no additional test piles.
