SR89 and SR267 Corridor Management
Placer County is advancing the Adaptive Corridor Management Project as recommended in the Resort Triangle Transportation Plan (RTTP) adopted by the Placer County Board of Supervisors in October 2020.
The RTTP provides detailed recommendations within the four plan emphasis areas which were the subject of technical study and community consideration: Adaptive Corridor Management along state Routes 89 and 267, parking management, transportation demand management and reduction of vehicle miles traveled. Specific to the adaptive corridor management, the plan recommended a package of near-term, mid-term, and long-term improvements identified for the SR 89 and SR 267. The primary recommendations include:
- Transit Signal Priority at intersections
- Transit Queue Jump Lanes at intersections
- Reversible Bus Only Lane between intersections
- Bus/Truck Climbing Lanes over Brockway Summit on State Route 267
In order to advance the implementation of SR 89 and SR 267 Corridor Management, the county solicited proposals for professional engineering services for the Placer County SR 89 and SR 267 Corridor Management Strategic Implementation and Phasing Plan (Plan).
This plan will build from the existing regional planning documents including expanding on the identified current and future transportation programs for corridor management as described in the Resort Triangle Transportation Plan (RTTP). The purpose of the study is to perform initial preliminary analysis and continue coordination and collaboration with stakeholder agencies, including Caltrans and the Town of Truckee, and the public to help refine the scope and understanding of the design considerations along the corridors. This includes the benefits and costs of corridor improvements on transportation, transit, the environment, climate resiliency, emergency response, evacuation, and other elements. Based on preliminary analysis of the benefits, constraints and costs, the study also is intended to assist in decision making related to prioritization, phasing, programming, funding, and implementation strategies.
The study requires a range of consultant services including, but not limited to, transportation planning and traffic engineering associated with transit systems, traffic signal operation and modeling, right of way analysis, climate change, community resiliency and evacuation analysis, project management, Caltrans assistance, funding, programming and scheduling, and preliminary environmental impact analysis to identify project constraints. The study will determine the most viable alternatives for implementing project components through a cost and value analysis, to facilitate strategic delivery of both near-term and long-term project phases.
The Procurement Services Division and the Department of Public Works worked together to develop the Request for Proposals (RFP) (No. 20368) to solicit competitive proposals for consulting services for the Study. Bid solicitations were advertised in accordance with the Public Contract Code. Eight contractors accessed the RFP documents, and a single firm submitted a proposal. After evaluation by an interdepartmental panel, the firm was determined to be responsive, and based on the merits of the proposal, it was decided to negotiate with Wood Rodgers, Inc., and ultimately recommend the award of the contract to the Board of Supervisors at the May 23, 2023 meeting.
Dates for stakeholder and public meetings as part of the plan will be announced as they are scheduled.
