Inquiry #2: The typical cross sections on Sheet X-1 indicates that the paving outside the ETW varies from 0' to 2'. There are currently no paved shoulders on this section of Highway, only gravel and base.

As your quantitiy would indicate you plan to pave a 2' shoulder throughout the project, Is it Caltrans' intent to perform up to 2' of paving on the existing shoulders? If so, how will the preparation of these aggregate base shoulders be paid for (i.e. clearing, filling, grading)?
