NOTICE TO BIDDERS

REDEVELOPMENT OF MAIN STREET AND

MERCER STREET TRAFFIC SIGNAL IMPROVEMENTS

CITY OF HACKENSACK, COUNTY OF BERGEN, STATE OF NEW JERSEY

Sealed Proposal for REDEVELOPMENT OF MAIN STREET AND MERCER STREET TRAFFIC SIGNAL IMPROVEMENTS, will be received by the City Clerk’s Office at the City of Hackensack, 65 Central Avenue, 3rd Floor, Hackensack, New Jersey  07601 on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. prevailing time, at which time and place they will be publicly opened and read aloud. No Proposals will be accepted after said hour.

 

The City of Hackensack is undertaking the Redevelopment of its downtown and street network that will change Main Street and State Street from two, one-way streets back to two-way operations between Passaic Street and Essex Street. Part of the one-way conversion has already been accomplished, with the completion of State Street Improvements.

 

In addition to the one-way conversion, the City has an on-going infrastructure project to separate the combined sanitary-storm drainage system into two discrete systems as well as constructing Streetscape Improvements.

 

The work to be performed under this Contract includes replacement of the existing traffic signal system at Main Street and Mercer Street, owned and maintained by the City. Immediately adjacent to the intersection is an at-grade railroad crossing, owned and maintained by the New York Susquehanna & Western (NYS&W). In developing the scope of work for this project, the need to include railroad pre-emption of the proposed signal was identified. To that end, a petition was filed with the NJDOT by Hackensack to modify the grade crossing. The petition resulted in a Diagnostic Team Meeting being held and a schedule of improvements and upgrades being identified that will bring the crossing up to current standards. These improvements and upgrades have been incorporated into the plans and specifications and are reflected in the scope of work, to the extent of the City’s responsibility.

 

This Contract requires only the replacement of the existing traffic signal installation and associated conduct and appurtenances while maintaining traffic to the downtown businesses and offices.  It should be noted that the conduit for the operational interface between the traffic signal and the railroad hut has already been installed and stubbed out under the rail bed. This Contract will include the work items necessary to complete and make the pre-emption operational. Hardscape, decorative lighting and other aesthetic features will be constructed that will round out the City’s Redevelopment efforts and will be constructed under a separate Contract.

 

It is imperative that the Successful Contractor understands they will be coordinating their work with other Contractors, NYS&W personnel, the Resident Engineer, the City and its Police Department to maintain access at all possible times to the greatest extent possible.

 

For the Traffic Signal Improvements at Main Street and Mercer Street, the major items of work and approximate quantities include:

 

·              550 L.F.  3" Rigid Nonmetallic Conduit, (Sched. #80), Under Roadway

·              9 UNIT  18" x 36" Junction Box
