Background: The purpose of this RFP is to obtain design and engineering proposals for the replacement of the Old Ferry Road tidal stream crossing. Currently the tidal stream is utilizing an undersized culvert, which is failing. The town wishes to replace this culvert with a design that is proper for the unique properties of a tidal stream, protects the surrounding environment and permits the required vehicular traffic that utilize this road. Old Ferry Road is the only access to several properties, including the former Maine Yankee Atomic Power plant (currently a spent nuclear fuel storage facility), MoInlycke Health (a medical device company), and a Central Maine Power facility. The road ends at a town owned river landing that is utilized by worm and clam harvesters, as well as recreational boaters. A proper and lasting stream crossing is vital to the needs of these businesses and the town.

Scope of Services: Provide the town with a preliminary assessment of the crossing and an estimated cost so that the town may consider its financing options during the design phase of the project so that once the design is shovel ready, the town can proceed with the construction. Design stream crossing structures and produce construction plans, specifications, and engineer’s cost estimate for each design, if more than one. Consult with state and federal officials to insure design compliance with federal and state rules regarding tidal stream crossings and provide documentation and/or required permits.
