RFQ: West Colfax Pedestrian and Transit Improvements Project

The City and County of Denver is seeking professional Consultant services to assist in the completion of the following tasks to prepare the design of West Colfax Ave. Tasks include, but are not limited to, evaluating recommendations of previous work, prioritizing improvements along West Colfax Ave., completion of CDOT required environmental process and any related environmental permitting, design engineering available project funding [Preliminary Engineering (30%), Interim Engineering (60%), Pre-Final Engineering (95%), Final Engineering (100%)], and additional requirements as further described in the full scope of work. The goal of the project is to increase pedestrian safety of the corridor while also increasing transit efficiency. Constructing pedestrian safety improvements on West Colfax is in alignment with Denver’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating traffic deaths by 2030. West Colfax was identified by the Vision Zero Action Plan as a part of the Denver’s High-Injury Network—corridors that have the highest percentage of fatal and injury crashes. West Colfax is also identified as a priority corridor in the Denver Moves Transit plan. Improving the street for pedestrians and transit users also supports the Mayor’s Mobility Action Plan and Comprehensive Plan 2040, which aims to provide convenient and accessible mobility options that reduce the need for single occupancy driving. Pedestrian improvements that will be designed and eventually constructed include medians, bulb-outs, signals, and marked crosswalks. Transit enhancements will include bulb-outs, bus by-pass lanes or queue jumps, and transit signal priority.
