Inquiry #1: Bid item 21(F) 560218 Furnish Sign Structure (Truss) - Detail on SD-1 does not show a walkway to be used however the CALTRANS standards still call for walkways unless noted.

Can you clarify if a walkway is required or not for this sign structure?

Inquiry #5: Refer to plan sheet 58. Please confirm there is any existing splices on the boxes/vaults at both ends of the bridge. Confirm we can have a planned outage of that line or not. If so, what are the times.
Inquiry submitted 02/27/2018

Response #1:1. There is one existing splice vault on the east end of the bridge, at left of NB Rte 5 Off-Ramp to Pasadena Ave.
There is one existing communication pull box near the west end of the bridge and in the shoulder of SB Rte 5 underneath.

2. There is NO planned outage because the existing conduits are to be split cut and removed, NOT THE INNER DUCTS OR COMMUNICATION CABLES. These will be lowered down/relocated with new split conduits and enclosure per plan.

All these are shown on the plan sheet E-26, sheet no. 58, of the contract plans.
