Q1) On the "pavement delineation quantities" table, there is a discrepancy with measurement. From PM T30.2 to PM T32.9, the detail 29 is measured per 4" stripe. However, from PM R27.4 to PM R36.3, it is measured per detail, which is incorrect for 100 mil thermo. This is significant because it brings the 4" Stripe quantity from 214,077 to 341,286. Please advise
A1) Please bid per the Contract Documents.
