Where in the plans/specs does it detail the placement/uses of Topsoil Borrow Special and Premium Topsoil Borrow?

Question: Where in the plans/specs does it detail the placement/uses of Topsoil Borrow Special and Premium Topsoil Borrow?

Answer: All existing topsoil is removed. On sheet 37, the Topsoil Borrow Special as shown in the medians as Topsoil Borrow Special 1.

All other areas get Premium Topsoil Borrow per the following:

S-64.1 The Contractor shall remove any existing topsoil material as part of the Common Excavation item. Existing topsoil should not be used on site for embankment under the roadway or within any area labeled in the plan as Topsoil Borrow Special. An estimated quantity of Topsoil Borrow Special 1 has been provided in the Bid Proposal for use on the project in areas designated in the plans. In addition an estimated quantity of Premium Topsoil Borrow has been provided in the Bid Proposal for use on the project in areas designated in the plan. No topsoil borrow shall be placed on the project until the Engineer has directed the Contractor to do so. The provisions of Mn/DOT 1903 shall not apply to Item 2105.607 Topsoil Borrow Special 1 or Premium Topsoil Borrow.
