Project: Development of a Statewide Strategic Transit Assessment Study
QUALIFICATIONS-BASED SELECTION CONTRACT
Posting Date: September 4, 2014
Scope of Work: The NH Department of Transportation is proposing the development of a Statewide Strategic Transit Assessment Study. This comprehensive study would inventory and assess the needs of NH’s public transit systems and intercity bus transportation network, with the primary focus on transit systems that are funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds. This study would also identify statewide transit gaps and needs, evaluate the overall statewide transit system for new routes and transit services, and identify opportunities for improved interconnectivity within the statewide and regional transit network. The On-Call/Task Order services format Agreement is anticipated to have a maximum value of $320,000 and a maximum contract period of 24 months.

Specific tasks may include the following:

  • Inventory of NH’s existing public transportation services (local, regional, and statewide), public transit vehicles, and transit capital infrastructure
  • Summary of Department-managed FTA transit programs to include an evaluation of the adequacy of Department staffing and funding to meet existing and future State and FTA program requirements
  • Coordination with the NH Regional Planning Commissions, State and Regional Coordinating Councils, and other transportation stakeholders to identify local, regional, and statewide issues and future concerns related to transit services
  • Consultation with intercity bus providers, as required by FTA Circular 9040.1F Chapter VIII Section 4 Intercity Bus Consultation Requirement, or as amended, to provide a statewide assessment of intercity bus service currently available and an assessment of existing needs
  • Identification of existing and forecast demands for statewide transit services, vehicles, and infrastructure, to include the prioritization and projected funding for existing and expanded services, for replacement and additional vehicles, and for the maintenance of existing and construction of new transit facilities
  • Develop and assist the Department with a public involvement process that includes public hearings, a project website, social media outreach, and surveys
  • Evaluation of the current viability and the projected sustainability of the statewide transit system to include any future increases or decreases in the level of transit services, in the size of the transit vehicle fleet, and the number of transit facilities
  • Establishment of performance measures to continually evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the statewide transit system
  • Proposal of scoring matrices, to include performance measurements, for use in evaluating grant submissions for each FTA formula program that NHDOT administers
  • Analysis related to integration of existing and new technologies and systems to improve the effectiveness of public transportation in NH, including cross-ticketing
  • Analysis of the State’s system of “Park & Ride” lots relative to current and future public transit utilization. Analysis shall include, but not be limited to, an inventory of existing sites with regard to ADA compliance, infrastructure inventory, parking constraints, roadway access issues, and recommendations for expansions, improvements, and investments including cost estimates and funding sources. Analysis shall also include a statewide forecast of future “Park & Ride” lot needs and expansion priorities, including recommended parking capacity and infrastructure, and cost estimates and funding sources. Analysis shall evaluate the system’s current capacity and utilization, and make recommendations to increase capacity, efficiency, and to provide for overall system sustainability

Project: Jaffrey 16307, X-A001(234)
US 202 / NH 124 / NH 137 improvements
(Preliminary Design Part “A”)
QUALIFICATIONS-BASED SELECTION CONTRACT
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.
