Inquiry #1: Q1) Do we have to clean joints after removal of old neoprene strip seals and before installation of new strip seals? If they require cleaning, is it paid for within Bid Item #37, Replace Neoprene Gland?

Q2) Locations 1, 2, 7, and 10 require joint reconstruction at the abutments. Are joints reconstructed at both abutments at each location? A quantity takeoff for structural concrete (bridge) at both abutments is about twice the bid quantity, which leads me to believe only one abutment at each location is rebuilt. This is a (F)inal Pay Item. Please advise limits of joint reconstruction.

Response #2:1. The joints must be cleaned prior to installation of new joint seal. Cleaning the joint is a separate bid item.

2. For locations 1, 2, 7, and 10 the concrete quantities to reconstruct the joints are included for both abutments at each location as shown on plan.
