Two Requests for Proposals for Big Shanty and Barrett Lakes Boulevard Studies Posted

The Town Center Community Improvement District (TCCID) has posted two requests for proposals for interested consultants to provide studies on Big Shanty Road and Barrett Lakes Boulevard corridors.

The TCCID’s 2017 updated masterplan identified multiple roadways for corridor studies. The intent of the individual studies is to assist the TCCID in analyzing existing conditions, surrounding growth trends, greenspace and traffic patterns and determine the next steps for improvements.

Integrating people and places into a “Complete Streets” transportation concept network is a key focus for both studies. This model will help to ensure safety for all modes of transportation, people of all ages and abilities, and support local land uses and natural environments.

Consulting teams should demonstrate competence and experience regarding the scope of work, expertise needed to understand these elements and effective communication strategy through graphic abilities and presentation displays.

“Building a consensus among community stakeholders and successfully communicating design options and impacts is key to these projects,” said Alisha Smith, TCCID Director of Projects & Planning. “We expect to see the incorporation of bike lanes, multi-use paths, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, pedestrian lighting and design alternatives that consider current assets and future growth.”

A pre-bid meeting for Barrett Lakes Boulevard Corridor Study will be held February 2 at 10:00 a.m., at the TCCID office. A pre-bid meeting for Big Shanty Road Corridor Study will be held February 2 at 11:00 a.m., at the TCCID office.

The last day for questions for both studies is February 9 at Noon, and both RFPs are due February 23 at 10:00 a.m.
