Inquiry #2: How does Caltrans plan on protecting the Concrete Anchor Blocks at locations since it's the only two locaiton's that don't have a "k" Rail detail.

Locations 28,96,97,102,106 and 107 calls for "K" Rail but there is no Concrete work to be done at these locations. What is the K rail required for?
