Original Date Posted: December 19, 2018 8:38 am


Due Date: 4:00 p.m., January 16, 2019

CITY OF SEATTLE
REQUEST FOR STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS
CONSULTANT SERVICES

Project:  SDOT 18-061 Fairview Avenue Bridge Replacement – Construction Communications 

The City of Seattle, through Seattle Department of Transportation, requests Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from qualified firms for SDOT 18-061 Fairview Avenue Bridge Replacement – Construction Communications.

SDOT is replacing the bridge at Fairview Ave N. Located on the southeast shore of Lake Union near the 1200 block of Fairview Ave N in Seattle, the bridge is next to the historic Lake Union Steam Plant building. The oldest portion of the current bridge was built more than 65 years ago and is the last timber-supported bridge on a major road in Seattle. While safe for travel today, the bridge is structurally unstable and vulnerable to earthquakes, including the newer portion made of steel and concrete, and needs to be replaced. The timber piles on the western half of the bridge, which hold up the roadway are decaying and the concrete girders on the eastern half of the bridge, which stabilize the street, are cracked. The bridge wasn’t built to current seismic standards and has a limited load capacity for oversized vehicles.

Project improvements will include:

  • New single-span bridge structure that meets current seismic standards
  • Northbound vehicle lanes wider by approximately 2 feet total
  • Sidewalks located on both sides of the bridge
  • Structurally able to accommodate future transit expansion
  • Three Lake Union viewpoints along the bridge
  • A new two-way cycle track to replace the shared bicycle/pedestrian path

SDOT is seeking consultant services for community outreach for the project through the construction phase. The project team will be led by the SDOT project manager and will include a multi-disciplinary consultant design team, SDOT outreach manager, SDOT project sponsor, and other SDOT and City staff chosen for their subject-matter expertise.

This contract is estimated to be in the range of $325,000 to $350,000.
