Pavement Design
Enquiry
Page 110 of the RFP states “Design-Builder shall be responsible for developing forecasted traffic volumes for pavement design. All forecasted data and supporting methodology shall be submitted to Contracting Authority for Review in accordance with the Review Procedure.” The Golder Pavement Design Report uses an assumed opening date of 2019.  The RFP requires the Diverging Diamond to be opened to traffic in 2022.  With this deferment and associated background traffic growth applied, the pavement design will change and additional pavement thickness will be required to meet the projected ESAL increase.  Can MTO please confirm that pavement should be designed based on the actual anticipated completion date and thicker pavement should be utilized as determined through revised analysis.
