City Releases RFP for DRI Connectivity Project -- Due August 27, 2019 with Amendment #1

The City of Hudson is seeking the services of qualified professionals to design and implement streetscape improvements within the City’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) BRIDGE District. The City of Hudson has identified a series of streetscape and multimodal improvements to be approached with design excellence that will address pedestrian safety, enhance multimodal transportation, and improve connectivity to adjacent neighborhoods and the City’s Downtown. This DRI project is funded by the NYS Department of State (NYSDOS).  

The City would like to more fully develop these concepts, select priority improvements based on public input/stakeholder feedback and advance key components through construction based on this input and the project budget, working with the City’s DRI Committee and Grant Management Consultant.

In 2017, Hudson was selected by New York State’s Capital Region Regional Economic Development Council (CREDC) as one of the ten DRI Round Two communities. The City and its local partners were awarded $10 million in state funding to revitalize the designated BRIDGE District (Build-Renew-Invent-Develop-Grow-Empower) located west of the City’s Downtown with Second Street forming the eastern boundary, the Hudson River to the west, South Bay wetlands to the south and Dock Street to the north. The overall plan should improve safety, provide enhanced connectivity to downtown and complementary DRI related investments.

An optional pre-submission site tour will be scheduled for August 13, 2019, pre-registration is required to ensure seating space available for the driving tour. Following the submission deadline of August 27, 2019, select firms may be invited for interviews. RFP documents are below.  For further information contact the Office of the Mayor, 518.828.7217.
