Inquiry #2: #1, The bid item for a LEAD PLAN seems unneccessary as this freeway post dates the use of leaded gasoline. Please confirm.
#2, It seems that some of the work on this project could be accomplished with a shoulder closure and less disruption to the travelling public but there is no provision in the MAINTAIN TRAFFICE section for shoulder closures. Please consider this option.

Response #2:
#1) Refer to the following: 1) "Remove Traffic Stripe and Pavement Marking" in Section 10-1.21, "Existing Highway Facilities", and 2) Section 7-1.07, "Lead Compliance Plan" in the "Amendments to the Standard Specifications".
#2) Refer to the Charts in Section 10-1.12, "Maintaining Traffic". A shoulder may be closed during the freeway, connector, ramp or road closure hours that apply at the location which contains the shoulder.

Inquiry #3: SECTION 10-1.12 MAINTAINING TRAFFIC, paragraph 12, defines the circumstances and conditions under which a shoulder may be closed, however there are no closure charts addressing shoulder closures. This seems like a conflict in the contract documents. Are shoulder closures allowed? If so, when? Please clarify.
