PROJECT QUESTION: How should the top of the big block walls be finished? . . .

Question:
How should the top of the big block walls be finished? The way the plans are currently set up, there could be unfinished areas exposed on the back sides of walls. To avoid this, suggests either a free standing block and then a cap, or a 4-inch cap for all walls similar to what is shown on page 288 with the rail detail. May need to update sheet 285, the top cap detail.

Response:
All pre-fabricated modular block walls shall have top blocks as shown in the railing detail on sheet 288R updated in Addendum 1. A note will be added and shown in sheet 285R as part of Addendum 2, referring to the detail on sheet 288R for the top block for pre-cast modular block walls.
