20-021 West Seattle High-Rise Bridge Safety Program Communications

The City of Seattle, through Seattle Department of Transportation, requests Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from qualified engineering firms for SDOT 20-021 West Seattle High-Rise Bridge Safety Program Communications.

This contract is intended to provide comprehensive communications and outreach support to all aspects of West Seattle High-Rise Bridge Program, including emergency repairs and stabilization, bridge replacement design, construction activities related to bridge repair and/or replacement, traffic mitigation efforts, traffic studies, and Spokane Street Low-Bridge monitoring and repair activities.  This communication and outreach effort will engage a wide variety of residential and business stakeholders including historically underserved communities.  This effort also includes coordination and facilitation of advisory groups created to inform and guide the City’s decision making, including the Technical Advisory Panel, Community Task Force, Maritime/Industrial Stakeholders and Employer Resource Group.

Coordination is needed with interagency and intergovernmental partners including federal, state and local elected officials as well as the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), the Port of Seattle and Northwest Seaport Alliance, Sound Transit, King County Metro, the United States Coast Guard, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and the Suquamish Tribe.

It is anticipated that this contract may have WSDOT FHWA federal funding in it in the future and will be updated as needed.

This RFQ anticipates approximately $5 Million for the initial three-year period of a multi-year and multi-phase contract. The phases are anticipated to include broad and targeted community and business engagement efforts and overall communications support; design; and may include all phases of construction and project completion, at SDOT’s discretion.  The phases, schedule and amount are likely to be revised and amended based on the overall project schedule, which will be informed by 2020 monitoring activities and related decisions, as well as SDOT’s efforts to simultaneously design repair and replacement options until a point when a decision will confirm which path will proceed to construction.  Community and business engagement, communications support and advisory group support is anticipated to last from now through the contract end.
