Inquiry #8: On drawing 7 of 44 you indicate a temporary access road but fail to provide contour elevations of the existing gground. You also show a narrow band of this access road on both sides of the creek but give no indication as to why this narrow band is 5' and 8' wide. This narrow band provides no access to the other side of the bridge without getting in the creek. Also you show the ramp down to this road on opposite sides of the bridge. Because the work is in 2 stages, it will be impossible to access the temporary road from the side that has the active traffic and therefore will not be able to access one side of the creek in each stage.

Although this drawing is named "Construction Details" many details are missing from this drawing.
