This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This procurement is a unrestricted under NAICS Code 324121 with a size standard of 500 employees. The USACE, Engineer Research & Development Center has a need for the following: Line item 0001: Provide Asphalt mix in accordance with the specifications below, Quantity 1, Unit: Lump Sum, Unit Price ______, Total Amount_________. Specifications: The full-scale test section to be paved with hot mix asphalt (HMA) is 20-ft wide by 175-ft long. The HMA will be placed over a compacted crushed limestone base course material which will be prepared by the ERDC. A plan view and cross section of the test section are provided in Figures 1 and 2, respectively. The hot mix HMA needs to be compacted, leveled, and meet minimum dry density requirements of 130 pcf. The asphalt concrete mix to be used is attached (Attachment 1). The full-scale test section will be surfaced with dense-graded HMA, with two 10-ft wide lanes 4-in. thick. Each lane shall be placed in separate 2-in. lifts. The asphalt concrete layer shall be bonded to the base course layer with a prime coat. The type of prime coat used shall be the slow setting (SS) emulsion EA-1 Prime applied at rate of 0.2-0.35 gsy. A tack coat shall be used to bond the asphalt layers. The type of tack coat used shall be the rapid setting (RS) emulsion CRS-2 applied at a rate of 0.05-0.15 gsy. The HMA to be used for this project shall be a local, readily available material that will not require any special modifications or material substitutions. The required HMA mix design is attached (Attachment 2). Any equivalent or substitute mix design shall be approved by the Contracting Engineer prior to placement. Random sampling and testing will be conducted by the Contracting Engineer. Random samples may be taken at the asphalt plant, for specimen compaction, and tested for stability, flow, laboratory air voids, and TSR. A portion of the same sample may be tested for theoretical maximum density (TMD), aggregate gradation, and asphalt content. Randomly selected cores shall be taken from the finished pavement mat and the longitudinal joint, and tested for density. Random sampling shall be in accordance with procedures contained in ASTM D 3665. The test results must demonstrate an in-place density of at least 130 pcf. If test results fail to meet the required density, the test section shall be removed and replaced at no cost to the Government and another test section shall be constructed. Location: The test section is located on the Forest Service Loop on the ERDC property at 3909 Halls Ferry Road, Vicksburg, MS, as shown in Attachment 3.
