Questions (Updated 8/20/14)

#1  What existing mapping does the ATRC or the cities of Lewiston and Auburn have for the streets identified in the RFP?

There are at least ESRI shapefiles with the following data available:

  • Bike Routes
  • Road shoulder type and width
  • Multi-Use paths (existing and proposed)
  • East Coast Greenway
  • Proposed Bikeways
  • Bike/Ped crash data 2003-2007
  • Bike/Ped crash data 2008-2010
  • Greenway Connectors
  • Greenway Trails - priorities
  • Bike/Ped facilities (Location, project type [bike/ped], length, cost estimate, plan
  • ATRC Bike/Ped plans
  • ATRC Long Range Plans - 2003. 2008. 2012
  • Sidewalk database - 2007
  • Walkability maps of the Barker Mill Trail - 2011

It would be up to the consultant to determine the suitability of the data and confirm its accuracy.

#2  As part of the deliverable for Task 3, is ATRC expecting a conceptual plan of the proposed connection?  Is a conceptual plan drawn on existing aerial and/or GIS information acceptable?

Yes, a conceptual plan for the proposed connection is required.  An additional accompanying report of reasoning, alternatives analysis, and phasing/cost should also be provided.

#3  Will consultant teams be considered for this assignment?

Yes, consultant teams will be allowed.

#4  What is the planned completion date for the project?

The planned completion date for the project will be December 2015.

#5  Is it anticipated that design projects may be pursued as part of a phase II to this project?

It is anticipated that feasible recommendations could be pursued via each respective city or through the ATRC capital project TIP with approval from the Policy Committee.  Such projects would be separate and not directly connected to this study.
