Inquiry #7: Section 19-6.03D of the project special provisions require that a surcharge be placed at new abutments 1 &3. The height of the surcharge above grading plane is 21’. Is this correct that the surcharge is on top of the new fill? This will require shoring of at least 30’ tall from the existing HWY 46 at abutment #1. Furthermore it will require shoring along HWY 99 in front of the abutment for both abutment 1 &3.
Please confirm that the 21’ surcharge is from the grading plane or existing grade.
How is the placement and removal of the surcharge paid? Also how is the additional shoring along HWY 46 and HWY 99 to be paid?
