Inquiry #1: The project hydromulch, straw, hydroseed and compost quantities are all 141,000 sf. This is well above what the contract requires for distubed areas which is the embanked material placed against the vegetation control and any area CalTrans requires the aerial deposited lead soil to be placed. Is the whole median going to be cleared and grubbed and then reseeded? What is the 141,000 sf intended to cover?

Inquiry #2: The vegetation control section calls for concrete that has a 28 day strengh of between 1,400 and 1,800 psi. The HTCB section requires concurrent placement of the vegetation control concrete and HTCB concrete socketed foundations. Based on these two requirements we are being required to use the same concrete for both applications. Is this correct?

Response #2:7/30/13: No, The concrete strengths for the HTCB and vegetation control are not the same. The concrete requirements for the HTCB foundation will depend on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Please refer to Section 83 of the Special Provisions for Vegetation Control (Minor Concrete). Please bid per the current contract documents.
