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.

Q) Quantity of Detail 36 (Gore Detail)appears excessive. 10,106 meters (6.28 Miles)seems impossible. The same problem exists with Detail 38A. There is 25,587 meters (15.9 miles) of Detail 38. Between the two stripes there is 150mm (8") striping the entire length of the project. Can this be correct? It appears the item will fall well under 75%.

A) Bid in accordance with the plans and specifications. If the quantity of an item falls below 75%, then the item unit price may be adjusted in accordance with Section 4-1.03B(2) of the Standard Specifications.
