Due to potential conflicts with existing overhead & underground utilities and creek bed to traffic signal and light pole locations, would it be possible to stake all of the traffic signal and street light foundations prior to bid? Please clarify the foundation size for pole #4 in the pole schedule of page E9. The size in the schedule conflicts with the detail on page E6.
Answer:
Submitted: Wednesday 18-MAY-2022 08:36 AM
MDT will stake all signal and luminaire pole foundations on the project prior to bid.  This will be for bidding purposes only and final layout will take place after award as requested by the contactor.  Any conflict  between sheets E6 and E9 regarding the foundation for pole #4, sheet E6 will take precedence.

Related to the scope of work indicated in the RFQ and acceptable manufacturers, could MDT provide any requirements related to deflection and post spacing standards so the teams can begin research. Additionally, will a 4-cable system be a requirement?

Submitted: Friday 25-FEB-2022 12:38 PM
Maximum deflection of 10 feet with a maximum post spacing of 16.5 feet.

Please clarify what is needed for the minimum 4-foot mow strip between the new rail system and the edge of pavement? Is this meant to be a surface that will restrict vegetation growth(compacted gravel)? Or must it be a hard surface(concrete or asphalt)? Must this system extend all the way to the new rail system if the cable is more than 4' off the edge of pavement?
Answer
Submitted: Friday 04-MAR-2022 02:53 PM
MDT requires an approved soil sterilant be applied to the soil to restrict plant growth.  Gravel or other surfacing is not required for this application.

UPDATED: Monday 07-MAR-2022 08:25 AM
MDT will apply soil sterilant after the new median cable barrier rail is installed.  This effort is herewith excluded from the project scope.

Referencing Section A. High Tension Median Barrier, paragraph 11 in the Request for Proposal. It is our understanding that during construction, any impacts to the facilities in place at the time of a traffic impact would be covered by a change order for replacement or repair of the facilities. Please confirm that this interpretation is correct.
