Has MDT conducted topographic survey of the 10 sites and will that information be available DB teams?  Reason for question is survey has been provided on past slope stability projects. This effort can be a significant for DB teams to undertake in the Tech Proposal process.
Answer
Submitted: Tuesday   07-FEB-2017 09:40 AM
MDT is finalizing the survey information. The survey information will be provided with the RFP.

Would MDT consider moving the completion date for the project to fall of 2018?  Given the high snowfall potential for the Missoula District, construction lane closures during the winter and early spring months will likely impede snow plow operations.  The current delivery schedule significantly restricts access to the sites and poses some safety concerns.  An extension would allow teams to better mitigate risks associated with inclement weather construction.
Answer
Submitted: Thursday 09-FEB-2017 08:52 AM

MDT will extend the contract time from what is included in the RFQ. New contract time language will be finalized and included in the Request For Proposals (RFP).

We noticed that in the posted Pre-Proposal Meeting minutes that only 2 of the 3 short listed firms attended. Since the one short listed firm was not in attendance they should be deemed non-responsive. What action, if any, will MDT consider for filling this spot
Answer
Submitted: Tuesday  04-APR-2017 04:39 PM
There was a malfunction in the Montana File Transfer System, which is how the short listed teams were issued the RFP. The third short listed team did not receive the RFP until the day of the pre-proposal meeting.  Due to the malfunction in the Montana File Transfer System, MDT determined that the third short listed team will be allowed to submit Technical and Price Proposals.

The duration for Phase II of construction is 130 calendar days. Please confirm the start date or range in start dates that Phase II may commence. Alternatively, to avoid confusion, would MDT consider making Phase II a completion date contract in lieu of a calendar day contract?
Answer
Submitted: Friday   05-MAY-2017 02:47 PM

The Contract Time in the RFP is changed to completion date. The Contract Time for Phase 2 may not exceed October 12, 2018.

Are there any as-built drawings available for the bin walls at the CYR interchange?
Answer

Submitted: Tuesday    09-MAY-2017 01:47 PM
The files linked below represent the as-built drawings for the structures. MDT provides them for informational purposes only. They do not include drawings for modifications to the structures, such as joint replacements and guardrail revisions and may not completely represent current conditions. Thus, some of the information contained in these documents may be out of date or not applicable with regard to the advertised project. The contractor should not rely solely on the as-built drawings provided for bidding purposes nor does any data in these files supersede the data in the contract documents
