(E05485) PennDOT: (E05485) (SOI/LOI) Design and Misc Services, Engineering and Environmental Open End. The Department of Transportation will retain an engineering firm for (1) open-end agreement for the services indicated below on various projects. The projects are administered by Engineering District 2-0 and are located in Engineering District 2-0. The Agreement will be for a period of 5 years. with projects assigned on an as-needed basis. The maximum amount of the Open-end Agreement will be 2,000,000 dollars. The work and services which may be required under this Agreement encompass a wide range of environmental studies and engineering efforts with the possibility of several different types of projects with short completion schedules being assigned concurrently. The anticipated types of projects include but not limited to: bridge replacements or bridge rehabilitation with minor approach work, environmental studies, roadway betterments (3R type), minor capital improvement projects (bridges or roadway), railroad grade crossing projects, and minor location studies, etc. This agreement will allow the use of Local Project Sponsors to utilize the services for the design and construction phase of their projects. The services will include all aspects of Engineering and Environmental Tasks described in the advertisement of this agreement. Only limited consultation during construction may be required. Based upon project delivery needs and the design consultant's performance, the selected firm may be required to perform specific design tasks. However, the firm would be prohibited from reviewing their own design work. This may also include supporting planning activities. These activities will be paid for as Specific Rate, and the work orders for these tasks will be modified accordingly. The selected consultant may be required to provide design services following the Minor Project Design Guidelines. The guidance for this procedure is outlined in DM-1 (Publication 10). Right of Way acquisition services will not be used for this agreement. District developed Right of Way Plans may need reviewed as part of this agreement. The selected consultant may need to review, approve and seal Department Right of Way Plans with a Professional Land Survey (PLS) seal. Other survey and design activities may be required. The engineering work and services that may be required under this contract include, but are not limited to: perform field surveys, plot topography and cross sections, prepared submission for utility verification and relocations engineering, prepare all pertinent submissions and materials necessary for the Department to prepare the application to PUC and for the PUC field conference, attend and supply and required information for all PUC meetings and hearings during the design of the project, develop erosion control details and narrative, prepare right of way plans, complete structure designs include type, size and location reports, core boring layouts and foundation designs and reports, develop traffic control plans with narratives, conduct soils investigations and prepare soil reports, investigate utility involvement on the projects, provide material for and participate in value engineering reviews, coordinate contracts with railroad officials and procure railroad related costs, permits, and insurance, collect signal timing, accident data and other traffic flow data, document engineering study findings and activities, perform alternative analysis to assess and mitigate impacts, and prepare construction plans, specifications, and estimates. These engineering services identified are the general work activities that can be expected under this Open-end Agreement. A more specific and project-related Scope of Work will be outlined for each individual Work Order developed under this Open-end Agreement. The areas of environmental study which may be required under the Agreement include, but are not limited to: air quality, noise energy vibration, hazardous waste, surface water and ground water quality, surface water and ground water hydrology, terrestrial ecology including threatened and endangered species, wetlands, soils, geology, farmlands, visual, quality socioeconomic resources, cultural resources, Section 4(f) Evaluations, early coordination and scoping correspondence meeting, minutes, public meeting and hearing presentations, visualization materials, handouts, and displays, technical basis reports (TBRs), and/or technical files, NEPA environmental documents, Section 106 documents, mitigation plans and reports, wetland and floodplain findings, and preliminary engineering plans, and remote sensing/mapping innovations. The format and content of all documents will be consistent with applicable State and Federal regulations, policies and guidelines. These environmental studies identified are the general work activities that can be expected under this Open-end Agreement. A more specific and project-related Scope of Work will be outlined for each individual Work Order developed under this Open-end Agreement.
