DTFH71-05-R-00013 Qualification Statements from all business concerns will be accepted for the George Washington Memorial Parkway Project PLH-GWMP 1A97. The project consists of the rehabilitation of the George Washington Memorial Parkway (GWMP) from Interstate 395 to the Columbia Island Marina entrance in Arlington County, Virginia and the District of Columbia. This work will include the replacement of the Humpback Bridge, construction of an acceleration lane, asphalt pavement removal and reconstruction through the project limits, realignment of portions of the Mount Vernon Trail (multi-use), construction of pedestrian underpasses, and other miscellaneous work. All roadways, trails, and waterways within the project limits must remain open to vehicle, bicycle, boat, and pedestrian traffic during construction. Access must be maintained to the Columbia Island Marina during construction. Specified horizontal and vertical clearances at the bridge site must be maintained for boat traffic in the vicinity of the Columbia Island Marina throughout construction. Due to the extremely high volume of traffic using the GWMP and the Mount Vernon Trail and the need for the traffic control to minimize delays and impacts to the traveling public, rush-hour time restrictions and weekend work will be used on this project. The existing Humpback Bridge carries the GWMP over the Boundary Channel and is a stone-faced, arch shaped concrete structure. The existing bridge?s width varies from 72 feet to 73 feet, measured from face-to-face of the stone parapets, and has a length of 244 feet. The bridge accommodates two 14-foot northbound lanes and two 14-foot southbound lanes, separated by a 4-foot median. The Mount Vernon Trail, which varies from 6?-0? to 6?-6? in width, runs adjacent to the northbound lanes, and a similarly varying width sidewalk is located adjacent to the southbound lanes. The existing 70-year-old bridge will be removed and replaced with a new structure similar in appearance to the existing structure. The existing architectural features of the Humpback Bridge are of a historic nature and will be incorporated into the new design. The proposed bridge will carry three northbound lanes, two southbound lanes, and a multi-use trail. The additional northbound lane is the proposed acceleration lane for the Southbound I-395 to Northbound GWMP ramp. In addition, the proposed bridge will accommodate open bank-side pedestrian underpasses north and south of the Boundary Channel, to connect the Mount Vernon Trail with the west side of the GWMP and to provide access to the Columbia Island Marina. The existing asphalt concrete pavement on GWMP will be reconstructed between I-395 and the Columbia Island Marina Entrance and will include changes to the vertical alignment on the bridge approaches. This will require regrading the Southbound I-395 to Northbound GWMP ramp and the Southbound GWMP to Northbound I-395 ramp to match the new vertical alignment. Northbound GWMP will be widened to provide an acceleration lane for the Southbound I-395 to Northbound GWMP ramp. This acceleration lane will extend across the Humpback Bridge. At the Columbia Island Marina Entrance, the median opening will be closed off to prohibit left turns at the Marina Entrance. The existing median will be replaced with landscaping. The pedestrian crosswalk and associated concrete sidewalk north of the entrance will be removed. Also, the existing Navy-Marine Memorial/Lady Bird Johnson parking area east of the GWMP will be removed and restored to match the surrounding terrain. The Mount Vernon Trail is a 9-foot wide asphalt-paved multi-use trail that is located along the GWMP. The proposed Humpback Bridge will be designed to carry the Mount Vernon Trail over Boundary Channel. In addition, the trail will be realigned to provide connections to the Navy-Marine Memorial, Columbia Island Marina, Boundary Channel Drive, and the new pedestrian underpasses at the Humpback Bridge approaches. The project is expected to fall within the price range of $15,000,000 to $20,000,000. The project is subject to the availability of funds.
