The City of Smithville seeks the services of qualified engineering consultants for project development and management of the construction of ADA-compliant sidewalks along Loop 230. This project works hand-in-hand with an EXISTING TXDOT project that will construct and repair ADA ramp access from SH 95 to Mills Street along Loop 230. The COS project intends to augment this TXDOT project by replacing damaged or ADA non-compliant sidewalks between SH95 and Olive, all of which will be ADA accessible and built to meet TXDOT and Smithville standards. This project will also construct new sidewalks and curb ramps to extend the Safe Routes to School sidewalks from Bluebonnet Circle to Webb Street (on the north side of Loop 230), which is currently a "cattle path" and heavily used by pedestrians. Except for the section from Bluebonnet to Webb, ROW width is 70 feet (currently pavement width is about 48 feet from edge of pavement/about 52 feet from back of curb where curbing exists). Due to the limited space and topography, COS plans to construct a 6-foot wide sidewalk with steel-reinforced concrete pavement (sidewalk width may depend on existing conditions). All sidewalk improvements will be constructed within the current Right-of-Way. No additional Right-of-Way or easement acquisition is expected.
All services provided by the selected firm shall comply with applicable requirements of the executed Advanced Funding Agreement between TxDOT and the City of Smithville.
