Enquiry
Section 2002.03 defines Continuous Winter Operations as “any operation performed by a Winter Vehicle is done in a continuous manor, utilizing all Winter Vehicles, with no unwarranted interruptions to service longer than thirty minutes until Bare Pavement Standard is achieved”. Where routes include both a combination unit and plow-only unit, will the contractor be required to deploy both vehicles from the yard during spreading only operations? Similarly, will the contractor be required to deploy all vehicles in the situation where only the right or left lane requires plowing?

Response
The definition for Continuous Operations is not tied to deployment of winter equipment; be it plows, spreaders, or combination units. Its’ intent is to define the expectations to be met post deployment. Under the CDMC contract model the timing of deployment of any winter equipment is left to the decision of the contractor depending on road/weather conditions and forecasts, and such decisions shall meet the contract standards. The ability to service either a right or left lane utilizing a single unit would depend on the configuration of the equipment itself and whether echelon plowing was required.
