The City of Durham sought assistance through professional services for the survey, design, permitting and developing of construction documents for the Lodge Street Regional Stormwater Improvements project. The City's Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) program was utilized for this process. A request for qualifications (RFQ) was advertised on December 7, 2018 and three (3) submittals were received.
The Lodge Street Regional project site (see GoMaps: https://goo.gl/aMhrpx) involves replacing and/or rerouting a compromised, existing stormwater drainage pipe system located both in the City right-of-way and on private property. It is the City’s preference to relocate as much of the system as possible into the City right-of-way. This includes City roadways of Scout Drive and South Street.
Due to the compromised condition of the stormwater drainage system, this project is being expedited with reduced timeframes for advertising, awarding, and project schedule.
