Request for Proposals – Municipal Scoping Study – Town of Orange
The Town of Orange is requesting proposals for production of a scoping study to identify alternatives, issues and costs and provide recommendations related to construction of a crosswalk and sidewalks facility in the Orange Village, funded in part by the Federal Highway Administration and the Town of Orange, through the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) Municipal Assistance Section (MAS).
Perform a pedestrian facility scoping study and safety analysis in the Orange Village area. The study will investigate pedestrian origins and destinations and evaluate what infrastructure might be needed to create a safer pedestrian environment along this section of State Route 302 where vehicle speeds seem high and sightlines are limited. Particular emphasis will be given to creating a safe walking area and crossing near the school. The object is to engage the community in this planning process, select a preferred alternative, and to provide the Town with engineering cost estimates for future capital improvements. Proposals due December 15th. Full details here
