The intent of this Request for Proposal is to obtain the services of a qualified professional engineering firm to provide a feasibility study for improvements to Kimberly Bridge and adjacent property. The bridge is located on Main Street near the Hilton Garden Inn. It is anticipated that the feasibility study would be used to seek funding opportunities for actual design and construction
The Kimberly Bridge provides for vehicular and pedestrian access across the Nansemond River in the heart of the Suffolk Commercial Business District. Main Street routinely experiences flooding conditions at the bridge during heavy storm events and often during high tide. The City is interested in investigating improvements to the bridge and storm drain system to eliminate flooding in this location. It is anticipated that a number of options will be considered that include raising the bridge and the possible relocation of existing businesses, including businesses with potential site contamination issues, as well as issues associated with relocating/realigning existing utilities adjacent to and on the bridge structure. The City is also interested in investigating opportunities to include stormwater or environmental features in the project that may address existing pollutant loading to the Nansemond River and would contribute to the improvement of the overall health of the river.
