Eagle County Open Space - Request for Proposal for the Brush Creek Valley Ranch and Open Space Trailhead Improvements Project.

Eagle County is soliciting proposals for construction of proposed improvements at the Brush Creek Valley Ranch and Open Space (“BCVROS”) property including parking lot and access driveway grading, crusher fine trail, and the installation of a 44-foot long pedestrian bridge over the Brush Creek.

The parking lot and access road will generally be on previously disturbed areas, will contain some fill including class 6 road base. The trail typical is ten feet wide (10’) and un-paved with four inches (4”) of crusher fine over four inches (4”) of Class 6 Aggregate Base Course as defined in the Contract Documents. (Contract Documents is defined in Article 7 of the Construction Agreement)

The bridge is a pre-fabricated steel truss. Work includes bridge procurement, delivery and installation according to the plans and specifications contained herein.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2020, and be completed by May 15, 2020. The general 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 nor 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.
