There is an asphalt path adjacent to and behind the sidewalk on the west side of 6th St SW.  The Firms design will need to provide ADA access to the asphalt path at the location of the ADA ramps.

The files linked below represent the as-built drawings for these locations. MDT provides them for informational purposes only. Some of the information contained in these documents may be out of date or not applicable with regard to the advertised project. The Firm 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.

Can you define the midblock areas that are non-compliant, requiring the approximate 200 square yards of new sidewalk?  Are these the multiple approaches within the corridors?
Answer
Submitted:  Friday  20-FEB-2018 02:30 PM
The intent of the 200 square yards of new or replacement sidewalk is to address non-compliant sections of sidewalk between intersections. This is an estimated quantity only and locations will be determined by MDT.

1) Can the maximum allowed page limit on Section 1, Quality Management Plan, of the Technical Proposal be increased to 20 pages?
2) The majority of the 'T' intersections along 6th Street SW do not have existing curb ramps that allow crossing 6th Street SW. Would MDT want new curb ramps only to facilitate ramps parallel to 6th Street SW, or prefer adding 1, or 2, ramps that would allow crossing 6th Street at these intersections?
Answer
Submitted: Friday    02-FEB-2018 03:52 PM 
1)  Yes, the page limit for Section 1, Quality Management Plan, is increased to a maximum of 20 pages.
2)  Provide 2 ramps if there is an existing crossing of 6th Street SW. Provide 1 ramp parallel to 6th Street SW if there is no existing crossing of 6th Street SW.

If sidewalk does not exist along intersecting streets, should this be considered a constraint (per Question 9 of the pre-proposal meeting minutes) and justification for using a single diagonal ramp, or would MDT prefer to extend sidewalk to allow double ramps at these intersections (example Central Ave and 10 St NW).
Answer
Submitted: Tuesday 20-FEB-2018 03:19 PM
The intent of the project is not to add sidewalk so if sidewalk does not exist along intersecting streets, this would justify using a single ramp.
