Project: Jaffrey 16307, X-A001(234)
US 202 / NH 124 / NH 137 improvements
(Preliminary Design Part “A”)
Posting Date: September 2, 2014
Scope of Work:

Preliminary engineering, environmental, and public involvement services are needed for the study of improvements to US 202 and its intersections with NH 124 and NH 137 in the Town of Jaffrey, New Hampshire. Preliminary engineering is required to develop and evaluate alternatives to improve the flow of traffic within and through the historic town center of Jaffrey, building upon prior studies undertaken by the Town and by Plan NH. The task will include reestablishing and documenting the existing highway right of way in a manner suitable for recording at the Cheshire County Registry of Deeds.

Environmental efforts are needed to prepare and complete all appropriate environmental documentation including, at a minimum, the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Water Act, the National Historic Preservation Act and Section 4(f) of the US Department of Transportation Act. The environmental evaluation will also need to identify all applicable environmental permitting requirements.
The Consultant will also assist the Department in undertaking a robust public involvement process building upon the Town’s planning efforts, including close coordination with the Town of Jaffrey and other stakeholders, and culminating in a formal Public Hearing for the preferred alternative. The tenets of context sensitive solutions will be employed as appropriate to achieve a balance among the competing needs of motorized and non-motorized road users and other stakeholders, while minimizing impacts upon the natural, cultural, and social environments.

This project will require both Part “A” (Preliminary Design) and Part “B” (Final Design) services. This solicitation is for Part “A” only. Upon completion of Part “A” services, the Department reserves the right to either negotiate a scope and fee for Part “B”, or terminate the contract. Consultants submitting a Letter of Interest will be assessed on their capability to perform the above-mentioned services. This work will require Professional Engineer licensure in the State of New Hampshire. The compensation format for this agreement will be cost-plus-fixed-fee.

For additional information contact Keith Cota, Bureau of Highway Design, at (603) 271-2171.

Closing Date: Interested firms must submit a Letter of Interest (limited to two pages), including contact information for at least 3-4 current references, on or before October 1, 2014 to William J. Oldenburg, PE, Assistant Director of Project Development, Chairperson, Consultant Selection Committee; NH Department of Transportation; PO Box 483, 7 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03302-0483.
