PROJECT QUESTION: Alternate #1 will require additional excavation to accommodate wood mulch being installed in the added planting beds, but no common excavation bid item was provided in this alternate. Will this be paid for through the base bid pay item or will an alternate bid item for common excavation be provided?

Question: Alternate #1 will require additional excavation to accommodate wood mulch being installed in the added planting beds, but no common excavation bid item was provided in this alternate.

Response: There is no additional common excavation for Alternate 1. The common excavation for the soil volume to be removed is accounted for in the base bid. There is no additional common excavation for the wood mulch. The intent of Alternate 1 is to install wood mulch in-lieu of Loam Topsoil Borrow. The Loam Topsoil Borrow quantity would be reduced approximately 115 CU YDs if this alternate is selected.
