userway ADA

Eagle County is soliciting proposals for construction of the Eagle Valley Trail Minturn Segment. The objective of the request is to select a highly-qualified General Contractor (GC) firm to provide Construction Services as described in the Request for Proposals (RFP).

Project purpose is to construct all components of proposed improvements of the Eagle Valley Trail Dotsero Segment including the paved trail, earthwork, culverts, trail signs and all other components necessary to construct a quality trail in accordance with all permit requirements, construction documents, and applicable regulations.  

Construction is expected to begin in June of 2023 and be completed by December 15, 2023. The contractor will work with Eagle County to complete the project in a reasonable amount of time. Actual construction schedule will depend on weather, permit restrictions, ground conditions, value engineering, schedule phasing efficiency, and other factors. Funding will not restrict the schedule.

Eagle County will manage the construction contract.  

There are no U.S. Federal Government or Colorado Department of Transportation funds for the project; therefore Davis-Bacon, DBE and other requirements customary to said funding will not apply to this work.  The project is funded by Eagle County. This publicly owned project is tax-exempt.
