The City of Bowling Green seeks to contract for engineering and surveying services in connection with the above-referenced projects.   The City intends to enter into a single contract with one design firm to perform the necessary surveying and design engineering to prepare construction drawings for both projects.  Firms interested in being considered for a contract to provide the required services must be ODOT pre-qualified for Non-Complex Roadway Design, Limited Right-of-way Plan Development, and Basic Traffic Signal Design.  The City will prepare specifications for bidding purposes and the selected firm will review said specifications to ensure consistency with the design.  The selected firm may be needed for technical assistance during project construction, however, the City will perform project bidding, construction administration, and observation.

The transportation projects are funded in part by the Federal Highway Administration’s Surface Transportation Program being administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation.

The WOO-SR 25/GYPSY LANE INTERSECTION project consists of the addition of a left turn lane to westbound Gypsy Lane Road, minor realignment of the intersection to eliminate the east/west jog, repaving of the intersection, traffic signal upgrades, and crosswalk and sidewalk improvements.  The preliminary cost estimate for the project is $1,188,800 with a scheduled sale date of March 2016.

A copy of the completed Project Initiation Package and other preliminary information for both projects is available at the office of the City Engineer upon request or online at http://www.bgohio.org/departments/public-works-department/engineering-division.
