REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Professional Schematic Design and Engineering Services for
West Peachtree Street/Spring Street Complete Street Project
This Request for Proposals seeks to identify a qualified consultant or consultant team to provide transportation engineering and design services to support the Spring Street and West Peachtree Street Complete Streets projects. The project limits are West Peachtree Street between Peachtree Street in Midtown and Peachtree Street in Downtown and Spring Street between 17th Street and North Avenue.
Spring Street and West Peachtree Street are currently one-way streets that primarily serve vehicular needs. Like most streets in central business districts, they were originally built for two-way traffic and later converted to one-way operation to make suburb-to-city trips by automobile faster. These streets remain important in supporting commute trips by automobile but need to provide opportunities for safe and appealing travel by other modes.
The purpose of this project is to perform a schematic streetscape redesign for West Peachtree Street between Peachtree Street in Midtown and Peachtree Street in Downtown and for Spring Street between 17th Street and North Avenue that uses the most current complete streets design guidelines. The primary goals of the design work include the following:
- Create a safe, protected bike lane on each street that links seamlessly with the existing and planned bike facility network.
- Improve sidewalk conditions to ensure safety, access, and comfort
- Ensure ADA compliance
- Facilitate bus service and improve bus stop amenities
