Request for Proposal

Questions – February 1, 2021 is the deadline for request for clarifications/questions. February 3, 2021 is will distribute response to request for clarifications.

Is a site visit access impossible before opening date? The road to the project area public. However, the road to the seasonally closed to wheeled traffic from December 15 – April 1. During that time over the snow traffic can be used to access the area.

We prefer to bid based on work complete vs hours complete. The project is being contracted as an hourly to accommodate for not having a pre bid walk through.

The project says the timeframe is a year but I was wondering if there is a preferred timeline? The preferred timeline would be completion during the summer – fall of 2021. Typically trail construction season for this location ends in mid October; however, snow is possible earlier.

Would you like us to include and define unit prices within our bid, or are you just requesting hourly rates with unit pricing to be determined in contract negotiations. Please just provide hourly rates.
