Q1) Where can I get a copy of the project cross sections at?
A1) Per section 5-1.09 SUPPLEMENTAL PROJECT INFORMATION: The Department makes Cross Section information available for making a copy. Cross sections for this project can be obtained at Fresno Reporgraphics(261-2347) at 7591 N. Ingram Ave #103, Fresno, CA 93711. 3Mar11.
Q2) In regards to the x-sections I had printed, I found that they don't match the typical x-sections shown on the project plans. On x-section sheet 203 of 356 a new structural section shows up on the left side (plan sheets show 1.5'-3'on the right side only). Then on sheet 211 through sheet 243 the x-sections show new structural sections as wide as 17' and on both the right and left sides. Also the x-sections can't be taken off from sheet 216 through sheet 243 as they run off the x-section sheet page. Also in question is Roadway Ex. vs required fill volume. Can you please check into these issues.
A2) Updated cross sections are now available at Fresno Reprographics (559) 261 2347, 7591 N. Ingram Avenue, Suite #103, Fresno, CA 93711-5839. 11Mar11.
