Response:
The bid Item 2402.546 Floor Drain Type B701 is for the floor drains shown on Roadway Plan sheet 38 of 42. This is an unusual application of the floor drains. But this area of the approach is actually cantilevered over the retaining wall below. Regular catch basins would not work at these locations. The floor drains are also shown on the drainage tab on sheet 39, and in profile on that same sheet. The items on sheet B186 are paid for under pay item 2402.601 Drainage System Bridge Deck as noted below the table on Sheet B186.
