Request for Proposals: Michigan Avenue Corridor Study
Updated: Mar 3, 2022
The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is issuing a Request for Proposals for the development of a Corridor Study from the Michigan Avenue traffic corridor from the State Capital Building in Lansing to Grand River Avenue in East Lansing.
Tri-County invites the submission of proposals from qualified and professional consulting firms that have developed a corridor study and conceptual engineering design plans in other areas similar in nature to our own. The Study will evaluate alternatives for management of existing and future traffic flow along Michigan Avenue, determine a range of alternatives for potential multimodal improvements throughout the Michigan Avenue corridor, technical analysis of specific corridors outlined in the RFP, and public involvement to provide interested parties opportunities to participate. It is imperative for stakeholders of the Greater Lansing region (including Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties and the cities of Lansing and East Lansing) to understand implementing the strategies mentioned in the Study will generate an improved multimodal corridor environment for pedestrians and bicyclists, and an enhanced transit presence beneficial for the region.
Interested candidates’ submissions should include a concise statement of the consultant's approach to the project and a summary of the consultant's ability to provide the required services.
