Question:
Given the 4-month low flow period restriction for work below El. 269 is the intent to install and remove the construction access for pier reconstruction 3 times; first season for the pilot boring program, 2nd season for phase 1 pier construction and 3rd season for phase 2 pier construction? Likewise, the control of water would need to be installed and removed for each season as well.
Answer:
JS Spec 804.9901 Pilot Boring Program, Construction Methods section 5: “The Contractor may choose to perform the subsurface exploration from either beneath the bridge or from the existing bridge deck. If from beneath the bridge, then the exploration program shall be subject to the time restrictions set forth in the environmental permits. If from the existing bridge deck, the Contractor shall be responsible for providing all required temporary traffic control, and restoring the existing bridge deck to its pre-exploration condition”. If the Contractor wishes to install the temporary access road year 1 specifically to perform the pilot borings then yes, Contractor will be required to remove it prior to the end of October. Borings performed from the bridge deck are not subject to the low flow restrictions.
