Professional Engineering Services - Springs Park Slope Repair

The City of Winston-Salem owns and maintains Springs Park and the segment of West End Boulevard between N. Broad Street and W. Seventh Street.  Near the 300 block of West End Boulevard the grade difference between the paved riding surface and the toe of slope varies between 15 feet and 20 feet.  Surface water runoff from the street, stream flow at the toe of the slope, and very steep topography have contributed to the erosion of soils and the progressive failure of the sloped embankment that supports the road.  Accordingly, this project will need to address slope repair and stabilization, stream re-alignment and protection, and roadway drainage improvements that will be in harmony with the park and the historic neighborhood.  The City of Winston-Salem Stormwater Division desires to engage a qualified private engineering firm for professional engineering services related to the repair and stabilization of the failing slope along West End Boulevard in Springs Park.  For additional background information on the project and requirements to submit a letters of interest, please open the PDF document below:
