Submittal Deadline: Wednesday, April 13, 2022, 3:00 p.m.

The City seeks to retain a consultant or consultant team to provide professional engineering services for these PID services. This project will be implemented by the City, and will require considerable coordination with the key project partner, the City of Oakland. The selected consultant team will serve as the City’s implementation and delivery team by providing technical and engineering services, including, but not limited to, project management; preliminary environmental, hydraulics, traffic, and structural analyses; stakeholder/public coordination and engagement; right-of-way data; and other support services as may be required.

The outcome of this effort is expected to be a PID document adopted by both the City of Alameda and the City of Oakland, and accompanying coordination that successfully advances the multi-agency goal of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the estuary to the next phase (environmental phase). The City seeks to have a completed PID by June 2023, and an adopted PID by December 2023, or sooner.

This contract will be funded by Alameda CTC Measure BB funds, and therefore Alameda CTC’s Local Business Contract Equity (LBCE) Program does apply. The LBCE Program establishes goals for the award of professional service contracts to firms located within Alameda County. For professional services under this contract, the LBCE Program requires the following goal(s): Local Business Enterprise (LBE) goal of 70.0% and a Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) goal of 30.0%.
