Request for Proposals (RFP) -Engineering Services for the Kenmar Rd & Highway 101 Interchange





In 2016, the City completed the Highway 101, Fortuna Downtown and Riverwalk Area Complete Streets and Connectivity Planning Study. The study was a multi-agency effort with the goal of providing an assessment of design alternatives to improve connectivity between the City’s downtown and Riverwalk area. In addition to improving the general connectivity for multi-model transportation, the goal of the assessment was also to identify projects that would increase the level of service for the US Highway 101 interchanges with 12th Street and Kenmar Road.  The study identified several alternative concept designs for the reconfiguration of the intersection of Kenmar Road and US Highway 101. The preferred design for the interchange is Option 2 in the report, which is referenced in the project below and is the subject of this RFP. A full copy of the study can be requested from the City from the contact listed below.

The Kenmar Road and Highway 101 Interchange Improvement Project consists of installing two ‘Dog Bone’ roundabouts on either side of U.S. Highway 101 along Kenmar Road. The westerly roundabout accommodates traffic to and from the US 101 southbound off-ramp, Kenmar Road, and the southbound US 101 onramp. The easterly roundabout manages traffic from Kenmar Road, the southerly reach of Eel River Drive, and northbound US 101 on- and off-ramps. As part of the project, the northern portion of Eel River Drive would be realigned to cross the railroad and connect directly into the new roundabout located on the east side of US 101. In addition to the roadway improvements, the project would include a separated bike and walking path with connections to potential future trails. See Attachment C for additional background on the project from the 2016 Connectivity Study. 

The scope of work consists of preparation of the Preliminary Environmental Studies (including all required Exhibits and/or Technical Memos in accordance with Section 6, “Environmental Procedures”, of the Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual (“LAPM”) for NEPA clearance, CEQA document, and preliminary engineering plans and studies.

Consultants are expected to provide a detailed scope of work that covers the items outlined below, along with any additional items that the Consultant deems necessary to provide full service to the City in delivering the described project.

      I.          Project Funding

This phase of the project is funded with a State Only grant administered via Caltrans. However, because Federal monies are anticipated to be used to fund subsequent phases of the project, the preliminary engineering package and environmental approval must satisfy requirements of the Local Assistance Procedures Manual (LAPM) and include NEPA compliance. The selected firm shall be responsible for preparing the environmental documentation and preliminary engineering package, including the associated documents and exhibits in the LAPM.
