The West End/I-270 Noise Barrier project is a Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) project. The SHA proposes to install a noise barrier along I-270 in the West End Park neighborhood. There is an existing noise barrier along the northern portion of this community. To protect impacted residents, the existing barrier needs to be extended approximately 2,000 feet, with an average height of 17.2 feet.

This project is part of the SHA Type II Sound Barrier program. This is a voluntary program which assesses impacts adjacent to existing fully access - controlled highways not being expanded, where the majority of the impacted development was built prior to the original construction, or approval of a highway. A program to implement Type II projects is an optional decision by the State, as the development and implementation of Type II projects are not mandatory requirements of Federal law or regulation.

One of the requirements of participation in the program is that all land that is necessary for construction of the noise barrier be donated to the State. The City is, therefore, responsible for acquiring the land needed which will then be donated to the State to allow construction. The City requires professional appraisal services to determine the fair market value of two pieces of property necessary for construction of the noise barrier.

No pre-proposal meeting will be conducted for this solicitation.

Prospective offerors are requested to submit any questions no later than FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017 to Jonathan Pierson, CPSM, C.P.M., Principal Buyer, via e-mail at .  Oral answers to questions relative to interpretation of requirements or the proposal process will not be binding on the City.  The City reserves the right to include questions and responses in the form of written Addendums, as it deems necessary.
