PROJECT QUESTION: Is the item for salvage boulder intended to build Wall L?

Question: Is the item for salvage boulder intended to build Wall L?

Response: The item for Salvage Boulder is included for the salvaging of landscape boulders as needed for proposed grading. In most cases, the boulders would be reinstalled in locations determined by the Engineer that work with the proposed grading. The pay item 2540.602 Install Landscape Boulder is included to cover this scope of work. The reinstallation of landscape boulders do not constitute retaining walls from an engineering perspective and will not be placed in conjunction with geogrid or special footing. Preparation of subgrade suitable for placing boulders by tamping or quality compaction will be required. Contractors are referred to the special provisions for these items for additional information.
