Transportation Plan Request for Proposals – Questions and Responses

June 8,2016

Downtown Atlanta has realized a number of transportation investments over the past ten years that have changed the fabric by which its various populations move around.  Examples include construction of Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, the more recent introduction of The Atlanta Streetcar and current construction of protected, two-way bicycle lanes (‘cycle tracks’).  Additionally, forthcoming changes in land use and new private investment will undoubtedly modify travel patterns and the characteristics of the Downtown area.  These include the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, redevelopment of Underground Atlanta and the Civic Center, and the new uses proposed by GSU-Carter for Turner Field.  With existing and future investments like these, combined with the influence of smart technologies and shifts in mode preferences, the configuration and operation of Downtown streets and sidewalks will function in new ways than before. 

Central Atlanta Progress, Inc. and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (CAP/ADID) request proposals from qualified firms or teams of firms with the appropriate expertise to serve as a consultant to develop a multimodal transportation plan (the Transportation Plan) for Downtown Atlanta, Georgia. 

CAP/ADID welcomes interest in this opportunity by all qualified firms.
