The City of Renton, in accordance with Chapter 39.80 RCW, requests submission of Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from engineering firms licensed to do business in the State of Washington for the projects listed below.  Interested consultants must submit an SOQ as outlined below.

1)      SW43RD ST/SE CARR RD/SE 176TH ST/SE PETROVITSKY RD CORRIDOR SAFETY PROJECT

This project will improve:

a)       Signal timing along the SW 43rd St/SE Carr Rd/SE 176th ST/SE Petrovitsky Rd corridor through the application of an Adaptive Signal Control System (ASCS). This 3.5 mile corridor has eleven (11) signalized intersections within the City of Renton limits and is bounded by Tukwila on the east, and King County on the west; and

b)      Widen the SE 176th St/SE Benson Dr (SR 515) intersection (east and north legs) to provide a right-turn only lane along SE 176th St and a merge lane along SE Benson Dr (SR 515). The project includes new sidewalks, bike lane, drainage, landscaping, illumination, traffic signal adjustments along the NE corner of this intersection to accommodate the proposed improvements.

The adaptive signal control involves: development of system engineering documents for assessment and selection of an adaptive signal control technology system along the corridor; provide alternatives and recommend a system to the City; and prepare plans, specifications and estimates for implementation of the adaptive signal control system.

The work to be performed by the CONSULTANT includes surveying, Preliminary Engineering (design development, PS&E), acquisition of right-of-way, coordination with King County, City of Tukwila and WSDOT for the corridor’s signal coordination, coordination with WSDOT for plans approval including the portion within SR-515, and other work at the City’s discretion.

The selected consultant may be retained for Construction Management Services.

All questions regarding this project should be directed to Juliana Fries, Transportation Systems Division, City of Renton, 5th Floor, City Hall, 1055 S Grady Way, Renton, WA 98057; phone: 425-430-7232; e-mail: JFries@Rentonwa.gov.

3)      LOGAN AVENUE NORTH – NORTH AIRPORT WAY TO NORTH 8TH STREET

This project will provide improvements between N Airport Way and N 8th St, including urban roadway amenities to implement “Complete Streets” practice.

Between N Airport Way & N 6th St, improvements include: reconstruction of the full width of roadway pavement between the Cedar River Bridge north approach and N 6th St; extension of the Lake Washington Loop Trail across the west side of the Bridge; transit signal priority system at the signalized intersections; roadway drainage system; and channelization.

Between Cedar River Trail and N 4th St, on the east side of Logan Ave N, improvements include: curb and gutter; a sidewalk separated from the travel lane by a landscaped buffer; realignment/reconfiguration of the “Y” intersection at N 3rd St, evaluation of a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon System or HAWK (High-Intensity Activated crosswalk) signal installation at this intersection; street lighting including pedestrian scale illumination; crosswalks; and pedestrian ramps per current ADA standards.

Between N 6th St and N 8th St, the roadway on the east side will be widened to provide a second northbound travel lane and replacement of the existing bike lane. Improvements will include: roadway pavement; curb and gutter; replacement of the existing sidewalk, landscaped buffer and street lighting; traffic signal modifications including transit signal priority system; channelization; and roadway drainage system adjustments.
