Jim Drake continues to remark on safety of the Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project. His ultimate concern is the extent of the city's liability along the project's route. He has met with Bob Bauman, Director of Public Works, of whom he asked three questions. 1) Contractually, is the city requiring Top Grade Construction to comply with Caltrans safety criteria for open-cut, center trenches, etc? YES. 2) Contractually, is the city free of any and all liability, including legal fees incurred in the city's defense, any and all claims and judgments relating to safety of the Corridor? YES. 3) Is the city responsible for any tires, rims, alignments due to potholes, sunken trenches in the contract area? NO; Top Grade is responsible.
