Q1) Note 4 of Plans says to install Piezo Axle Sensors and Loop Detectors. However, only 10 of the locations as specified in Note 4 show Piezo's to be installed. The remaining 10 locations do not show Piezo's on the plans, although Note 4 is still on those plans. If we install piezo's as shown in note 4 there will be an additional 30 piezo's to be installed. Please clarify which is correct. The Note 4 or the plans?
A1) The project plans shows if we install piezos or not.
Q2) Is there any chance of getting theses working days extended from 15 to 25 working days? I have one crew and with the lane clousure time restrictions I cannot get more that one location done per day. Two of the locations on four lane highways will probably take two days per location.
A2) The project can be done within 15 working days. No need to extend working days.
