CIVIL, ENVIRONMENTAL, GEO-TECHNICAL ENGINEERING SERVICES, OUTDOOR RECREATION DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

1. INTRODUCTION

The Municipality of the District of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, is issuing this Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) from Engineering Consultants interested in providing civil, environmental, geo-technical and outdoor recreation design and construction services to the Municipality in regards to future active transportation / recreation development on the Lake Milo stretch, along Highway #1 in Dayton, Nova Scotia. 

Submissions Due: July 14th, 2020 at 4:30pm ADT.

The Lake Milo stretch provides a number of unique lake side opportunities for active transportation (AT) facilities, as well as a number of looped routes particularly for runners, walkers and cycling traffic. Much of the route parallels in close proximity to the active rail trail corridor providing an opportunity to use the Lake Milo stretch and the Yarmouth Rail Trail in concert, as a looped system.  This active area is approximately 1.2 kilometres along Lake Milo and is also very busy extending further down Highway #1 through Hebron to Lakeside Road, located on the west side of Milo / Second / Doctor Lakes.  A major issue with this active area, is the need for improved access management practices as many of the commercial areas along this route are uncontrolled access points, generally negatively impacting pedestrian and cyclist traffic.  The Municipality is looking for options for connectivity, in a phased approach, to develop the lands and open spaces to meet the needs of our active community.
