Project: Plaistow-Kingston,10044E, X-A000(378)
Reconstruct NH 125 from south of Plaistow town line northerly approximately 1.7 miles. (Preliminary Design Part “A”)
QUALIFICATIONS-BASED SELECTION CONTRACT
Posting Date: January 18, 2017
Scope of Work: This Federal Aid Project includes traffic analysis, preliminary design, public involvement, and reevaluation of previously conducted environmental review for the reconstruction of the unimproved 1.7 mile segment of NH 125 between Old County Road (Plaistow) and Newton Junction Road (Kingston). A preliminary design for this segment was developed by the Plaistow-Kingston 10044B Environmental Assessment and is available for inspection.

The scope of work for Part A will involve:

  • Thorough traffic analysis to confirm or modify the recommended layout as shown in the EA.
  • Preliminary design to evaluate and modify the proposed layout as needed based on the results of the updated traffic analysis.
  • ROW layout and plan development, including any necessary survey work, for reestablishing and documenting the existing highway right of way in a manner suitable for recording at the Registry of Deeds.
  • Reevaluation of NEPA (completed in 2006) with respect to any modifications to the proposed action. The environmental evaluation will also need to identify all applicable environmental permitting requirements.
  • Reinitiate a creative and robust public involvement process to reach consensus on a proposed action. Open house forum meeting(s) with town officials and stakeholders are expected to be part of this process. (The 10044B public hearing was held in 2004; this project will be covered by that Finding of Necessity)

This project requires Part “A” (Preliminary Design) and Part “B” (Final Design) services. At the conclusion of Part “A”, the Department reserves the right to either negotiate a scope and fee for Part “B”, or terminate the contract.

This work will require Professional Engineer and Land Survey licensure in the State of NH.

Consultants submitting a Letter of Interest will be assessed on their capability to perform the above-mentioned services, other relevant project experience with references noted, and their current workload with the Department.
