Inquiry #4: 49-4.03 CONSTRUCTION
Existing ground between the catch point and the ESA located to the right of the RWLOL line shall be
protected in place prior to gaining access below the wall with equipment. Either an elevated access
platform or a temporary access road grading plan shall be submitted to the Engineer for review and
approval as a Temporary Access Plan. A temporary access road grading option shall include either a
hard barrier between the original ground and subsequent grading materials so as to avoid contamination
of the original ground with construction materials graded in place, or a minimum of 8” of woody mulch
ground cover placed directly over the undisturbed existing ground prior to any subsequent grading or
construction of an at grade temporary access.
The Engineer shall be granted 10 working days for the initial review and approval of the Temporary
Access Plan and 5 working days for each subsequent review. The contract price paid per linear feet for
36” Drilled Hole shall include full compensation for furnishing all labor, materials, tools, equipment, and
incidentals and for doing all the work involved in constructing a Temporary Access to the right of the
RWLOL line between the catch point and the ESA. The Temporary Access Plan must comply with
conditions in the project SWPPP.

These questions reference the above SP

1. Is the catch point mentioned above the design catch point or the catch point of the existing fill?

2. What is a "Hard Barrier"?

3. This area appears to be excluded from the erosion control plan. Can this area be cleared? What is the required erosion control treatment? Will this treatment be paid for under erosion control items?

Response #3:6/16/14: [2] A "hard barrier" can be any rigid material, approved by the Engineer, which separates the original ground from the subsequent grading materials so as to avoid contamination of the original ground with construction materials graded in place. As noted in Section 49-4.03, in lieu of a "hard barrier", 8” of woody mulch ground cover placed directly over the undisturbed existing ground prior to any subsequent grading or construction of an at grade temporary access is also acceptable.
[3] You are correct, this area is excluded from the erosion control plan. The area is not to be cleared or disturbed and must be protected in place.
