The City of Winston-Salem desires to engage a private firm for the following project: a comprehensive streetscape design and cost estimate of Business 40 (US 421) from west of Fourth Street to east of Church Street, including the design of a multi-use bicycle/pedestrian path within the corridor with connections to the city's Strollway.
NCDOT has initiated a public process to improve the aesthetic appearance of the future bridges, interchanges and related roadway infrastructure. Numerous public meetings, hearings and workshops have been held the last few years to help define the look and visual components for the proposed project.
Parallel to the public process, the Creative Corridors Coalition (C3), a private non-profit citizens group, developed its own master plan and design guidelines for the corridor in 2011 and it was adopted by the City of Winston-Salem. The C3 master plan has four main elements in its design – that the corridor will become a Green, Artful, Iconic, Network (GAIN). While most of the basic decisions of the freeway’s geometric design are featured in the roadway’s “deep cut” alternatives, the appearance of the corridor from end to end has of yet not been decided. The need for bringing the elements of both processes into developing a comprehensive streetscape design for the entire corridor is apparent.
All firms are invited to submit letters of interest for providing the requested landscape architecture, civil engineering and urban design services by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, 2014. Letters of interest submitted after this deadline will not be considered. The submittal, in PDF format, should be submitted to Greg Errett, AICP, Transportation Planning Manager to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All questions concerning this request for Letters of Interest or the scope of this work should be directed to Greg Errett, AICP, Transportation Planning Manager, email@example.com, phone (336) 747-6871.
