1.)  QUESTION (5/30/17):

Is there a specification for native seeding and erosion control blanket? Is that being performed under a separate contract or should it be included as incidental to the excavation?

Site access to be used is 22nd Street (via Hillcrest from MLK Jr.).  Speed limit of 20 MPH or less must be observed.  Any dust and/or debris on the streets MUST BE CLEANED OFF DAILY!
