Subject: Mass Concrete Type: Proposal
Question Date: 11/8/2018 4:13:49 PM
Page 143 of the Special Provisions - I DESCRIPTION - States that any concrete element whose minimum dimension exceeds 5 feet is Mass Concrete. III PROCEDURES - States if any portion of a concrete element has a dimension that exceeds 5 feet, the entire element shall be treated as Mass Concrete. Can you clarify which is correct?  
Answer   Date: 11/9/2018 6:24:58 PM
The intent of the Special Provision is to apply the Mass Concrete requirements to any concrete element with a MINIMUM dimension exceeding 5 feet. To clarify even further, the Department has determined that only the PIER COLUMNS and PIER CAPS will be subject to the Mass Concrete Special Provision.  
Subject: Self Consolidating Concrete / Mass Concrete Spec Type: Specifications
Question Date: 11/8/2018 3:22:42 PM
Where the concrete producer is required to meet SCC and Mass Concrete specifications, Can the concrete producer be able to reduce the required spread lower limit to 20” in lieu of 23”. As the spread of the concrete increases the lower powder content(required to meet the mass concrete heat of hydration limits) tends to increase the potential for segregation. The current spec is written at 26 +/-3”. At the bottom of this range the mix can be produced and meet the required segregation test, but being able to produce every load at a 23” spread is not practical. At the higher end of the range segregation is almost guaranteed.  
Answer   Date: 11/8/2018 8:11:39 PM
The intention is to produce a concrete mix to meet the Mass Concrete Specification and be Self Consolidating. The Department will work with the producer to meet the Mass Concrete Specification and determine an optimum approach for Self Consolidation. This may mean a variance in the J-Ring Test or the spread noted in the question.  
Subject: Access Through Park Type: Proposal
Question Date: 11/7/2018 9:56:59 AM
Are there provisions for milling and paving the entire access road used by the contractor through the park? Should this portion degrade during construction will milling and paving this portion of the access after construction be up to the Contractor?  
Answer   Date: 11/8/2018 9:22:51 AM
Milling and paving of a portion of the park access road realignment is part of the project and the limits are shown on sheets 4 and 5 of the roadway plans. This work is to occur at the end of construction once all work has been completed in accordance with the Special Provision for General Bridge Construction Access. Any pavement damage to the park access road caused by the contractor's construction activities shall be repaired immediately and at no additional cost to the Department.  
Subject: Borrow Excavation Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/7/2018 9:50:15 AM
Can the Department clarify the location where the borrow material is to be placed?  
Answer   Date: 11/8/2018 9:23:12 AM
Most of the borrow material will be placed along the roadway approaches to each abutment.  
Subject: Pile Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/6/2018 2:44:22 PM
Plans call for this to be HP 16 x 162. Since this material is from a single source, will alternate sizes be accepted? If so, what sizes are acceptable?

Subject: CCW-1 Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/6/2018 11:00:55 AM
I am not seeing a panelboard schedule within the lighting plans. Is one available?  
Answer   Date: 11/8/2018 9:23:34 AM
Please refer to 2016 Road and Bridge Standards for details of CCW-1, Type C. The contractor shall supply two 60 AMP rated contactors and four 25 AMP circuit breakers for each location.  
Subject: Metal Deck Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/5/2018 2:56:38 PM
Are Stay-In_Place Metal Deck Forms permitted on this structure?  
Answer   Date: 11/6/2018 8:28:46 AM
Yes, please see Section 404.03 (a) of the Specifications.  
Subject: Pier Columns Type: Other
Question Date: 11/5/2018 9:23:02 AM
Does the Special Provision for Mass Concrete apply to the Pier Columns?  
Answer   Date: 11/8/2018 8:18:42 PM
The Special Provision for Mass Concrete will apply to the pier columns.  
Subject: Settlement Plates Type: Plan
Question Date: 11/2/2018 8:13:08 AM
The project requires 10 each Settlement Plates. Sheet 2F(2) shows 3 of them on sheet 3 and 7 of them on sheet 6. The fill required from Sta. 103+00 to 105+00 (sheet 3) is minimal and the fill of any consequence on sheet 6 only occupies a short distance. Where are the settlement plates actually intended to go and for what purpose?  
Answer   Date: 11/5/2018 10:29:39 AM
Settlement plate locations and details are shown on the MSE Wall Plans (Sheets 100-106) of the Bridge Plans and recommendations contained in Sec. 10.6 of the Geotechnical Engineering Report dated 5/12/17.
