The City of Burien (CITY) solicits interest from consulting firms with expertise in Civil and Structural Engineering Design. This agreement will be for approximately 12 months in duration with the option for the CITY to extend if necessary.

Project Description
The work to be performed by the CONSULTANT consists of preparing preliminary engineering design to replace the Peter Western Bridge and to restore the streambed as required by permitting agencies. The proposed improvements include a new two-lane bridge with sidewalks, replacement of a 36-inch diameter storm sewer (if necessary) and energy dissipater, streambed and streambank restoration, removal of invasive species and revegetation.
South 116th Street is a minor arterial with an ADT of approximately 7,000. The stream below it is not in King Countys database of classified streams, but is a tributary to the Duwamish River. This project has a mandatory DBE goal of 19%. The major features of the project are as follows:
Structural design of the replacement bridge.
Structural and hydraulic design of the replacement storm sewer and outfall (if needed).
Hydrological and hydraulic design of restored streambed and ravine sides.
Geotechnical assessment to support the above design work.
Environmental documentation and preparation of permit applications.
Determination of Right of Way needs.
Right of Way plan preparation and Right of Way negotiation.
Preparation of a complete estimate, biddable plans and specifications.
At the Citys option, provide Construction Management and Engineering for the construction phase of the project, if requested.
The CITY would like to have the project ready for construction as soon as possible, but recognizes that permitting will affect the schedule.
Assistance during construction and Construction Management will be optional tasks included in the contract and the contract may be amended to include these tasks if the CITY elects to do so at a future time.
