Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: The purpose of this project is to apply pavement markings to selected street segments in different materials for the City of Bristol, Tennessee. This work can be broken down into the following categories: A. Group A markings are to “refresh” (overlay) existing thermoplastic or painted pavement markings at selected, listed locations in northwestern Bristol within 90 days of award of bid with 90-mil thermoplastic pavement markings, either hot-melt or preformed. B. Group B markings are to overlay existing (or already laid out) painted longitudinal painted pavement markings on roadways that have already been resurfaced with 125-mil hot-melt pavement markings within 90 days of award of bid. These locations are primarily in southern and western Bristol. C. Group C markings are to install new hot-melt thermoplastic pavement markings on roadways that are to be resurfaced in the 2020 construction season with 90-mil hot-melt thermoplastic pavement markings. The contractor has the option to install such markings within 24 hours of paving, weather permitting, or to temporarily paint certain longitudinal pavement markings within 24 hours and then install permanent thermoplastic pavement markings as soon as practical. The locations are throughout the City of Bristol. The contractor will be responsible for providing all labor, equipment, materials, and other requirements for the application of painted and hot-melt thermoplastic pavement markings at these locations in accordance with the current Federal Highway Administration and Tennessee Department of Transportation standards, as appropriate, for the materials and workmanship, as amended. At all locations the contractor will supply adequate traffic control devices, cones, flaggers, etc. as required to comply with the work zone standards in the latest and current edition of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, as amended. The contractor will provide his or her own escort vehicles and drivers, as required. The contractor will be responsible for the disposal of all waste products in accordance with the appropriate state, federal, and local laws. All traffic paint used will be of a water-based type; no alkyd-based paints or paints containing excessive lead or lead compounds will be used. All traffic paint used will dry to a tack-free and track-free state within sixty (60) seconds of application, 15 mils thick above the plane. The contractor will solely be responsible for the removal of any traffic paint tracked by vehicles on pavement or on vehicles at no cost to the City of Bristol, Tennessee. City staff will lay out all new pavement markings, on either new or existing older pavement, in advance of the Contractor arriving on the job site. The Contractor will not be responsible for any layout work. No new crosswalks consisting of two parallel transverse lines will be installed. All crosswalks will be of the continental “piano key” type, with 24-inch lines approximately parallel to the flow of traffic, with 24-inch gaps between the lines, as laid out by the City. Yield lines (“shark teeth”) will measured by the length of the overall line from end to end, not by the measurement of the specific number of “teeth.”
