The responses to bidder's inquiries, unless incorporated into a formal addendem to the contract, are not a part of the contract and are provided for the bidder's convenience only. In some instances, the question and answer may represent a summary of the matters discussed rather than a word-for-word recitation. The availability or use of information provided in the responses to bidder's inquiries is not to be construed in any way as a waiver of the provisions of Section 2-1.03 of the Standard Specifications or any other provision of the contract, the plans, Standard Specifications or Special Provisions, nor to excuse the contractor from full compliance with those contract requirements. Bidders are cautioned that subsequent responses or contract addenda may affect or vary a response previously given.

Q1) The quantity of pavement markers given seems to be exactly double what is required.

A1) The bidder is correct. Please bid in accordance with the current contract documents. If a change becomes necessary, it will be addressed by proposed Contract Change Order in accordance with Section 4-1.03, "Changes," of the Standard Specifications.

Q2) Does this project require a profilograph and must grinds? The specs are not very clear, and it doesn't make sense to grind a .15' rubberized overlay. Please clarify.

A2) The profilograph is required (except for the excluded areas called out in the specifications) but the profile index is not. Regarding the comment on grinding, the specifications list additional options for corrections.
