RFQ Issued for Locally Owned Bridge Preservation Study

CDTC has budgeted up to $105,000 over a two-year period for Identification of Bridge Preservation Candidates, Treatments, and Costs for Locally Owned Capital District Bridges. CDTC’s New Visions 2050 Regional Transportation Plan emphasizes infrastructure preservation as one of its guiding principles, and identifies locally-owned bridges as a key area for investigation. In 2015, the first iteration of CDTC’s local bridge preservation report was completed.

CDTC is requesting proposals to provide a complete update to the 2015 report using the most recent bridge inspection data available in order to provide local agencies with the guidance needed to carry out timely and cost-effective preservation strategies. The consultant shall work with a steering committee comprised of local and state bridge stakeholders to review existing bridge conditions and develop treatment recommendations. CDTC, on behalf of local member jurisdictions, will administer the consultant contract and will serve as project manager.

Andrew Tracy will serve as the project manager and will be the primary contact for technical and administrative questions by email at atracy@cdtcmpo.org. Please contact Latanya Sellie at CDTC directly for a complete copy of the RFQ by emailing at lsellie@cdtcmpo.org. Please note that CDTC staff are currently working remotely and have limited access to CDTC’s phone line. Proposals are due by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, August 12th, 2020
