General Statement of Work:
North Central Community Transportation Network (NC CTN) is the fourth Community Transportation Network, and it represents a revised approach that aims to gain efficiencies in the planning and design phases, while also delivering a more multimodal vision, as articulated in Denver Moves Everyone. NC CTN will improve multimodal connectivity, increase transportation equity, improve safety, and prioritize top projects for design and construction within the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, and Downtown Denver neighborhoods.
To accomplish project goals, DOTI is seeking consultant services related to planning, design, communication, and construction support tasks for the following asset classes:
- Bicycle and Micromobility Improvements – including new and upgraded bikeways and crossing improvements. These new and improved facilities will include both paint & post projects and permanent/concrete projects; the Consultant shall determine which materials should be used for each corridor given project budget constraints, stormwater/drainage needs, and other considerations unique to each corridor.
- Pedestrian Improvements – including sidewalks and intersection improvements.
- Transit Improvements – including bus stop improvements and bus priority treatments. Improvements to the Brighton/47th/48th Ave bus corridor, a future Local BRT route, shall include determination of preferred local preferences for route alignment through the NC CTN study area, as well bus priority treatments and bus stop enhancements for both interim and long-term development. In addition, enhancements should also be planned and designed for other bus stops throughout the study area that have been previously identified by DOTI. Public outreach, analysis, and coordination with RTD shall be required for future BRT, bus priority treatments, and bus stop enhancements.
- Green Infrastructure (GI) Improvements – Integration of green infrastructure into multimodal transportation improvements to create safer, healthier, more climate resilient streets.
