Assessment of Regional Pedestrian Infrastructure
The Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is soliciting proposals from a qualified and experienced consultant, or consultant team, to provide professional services to identify best practices and develop recommendations for scalable methods of collecting information on pedestrian facilities, pedestrian volume, and safety data throughout the Baltimore region. Recommended methods would then be used to develop a performance monitoring tool for the pedestrian environment, a Regional Pedestrian Infrastructure Assessment.
This tool would be used to evaluate pedestrian mobility in small areas, small communities, transit station areas, and sidewalk access to bus stops. Output may be used in the development of the Long-Range Transportation Plan, to evaluate projects in the Transportation Improvement Program. The tool could also be used by planners, engineers, and other professional staff to evaluate the suitability of pedestrian facilities throughout the region and identify and prioritize improvements.
Proposals must be received by BMC no later than Thursday, December 17, 2020, by 2 p.m.
Written questions about this procurement should be sent to Sheila Mahoney at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday, December 1, 2020, by 4 p.m.. Answers to questions will be posted on the BMC website no later than Friday, December 4.
