Subject: MOT Type: Specifications
Question Date: 9/14/2021 1:24:38 PM
MOT Stage IV notes indicate traffic is to be maintained on two 11’ lanes. Considering the ramp is exactly 22’ wide, the lanes, by default, to have a full white edge line, will be slightly less than 11’ at approximately 10’7”. Has VDOT considered this condition and will the narrow lane widths be accepted as shown in the drawings.

Subject: Ramps Type: Plan
Question Date: 9/14/2021 1:24:16 PM
The ramps depicted in the structural drawings do not appear to comply with drop-off requirements within the clear zones. Specifically, the annulus between the edge of the plates and the curb section of the post/rail barrier is open and exceeds permissible depths. The Contractor, without modifying the MOT plan, does not have a viable means to establish a MUTCD / 2011 Virginia Work Area Protection Manual compliant condition while maintaining two-way traffic. Additionally, devices approved for use on bridge decks, with an exposed edge, generally require bolting through concrete. Has VDOT evaluated this condition, and, considering the Contractor is unable to mitigate the same, without limiting two-way traffic, willing to indemnify the Contractor for incident directly resultant from this condition if an alternate MOT plan is not provided prior to the bid that addresses this condition?

Subject: Operation Plan Type: Specifications
Question Date: 9/14/2021 1:23:14 PM
Multiple statements requiring the Contractor to have a written operation plan in place prior to engineer review of the shop drawings exist. To draft an appropriate plan frequently requires details that exist only in the shop drawings. Considering, that materials are likely critical path items, and the fixed navigation span shutdown period, will VDOT waive this requirement to facilitate expedited shop drawing reviews required to achieve the milestone dates?
