RFP Issued for Transportation-Related Safety Feasibility Study

Request for Proposals for Transportation-Related Feasibility and or Safety Study

OVRDC is requesting proposals for Transportation-Related Safety/Feasibility Studies.

The Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission (OVRDC), a Regional Transportation Planning Organization, is issuing a request for proposals for transportation-related feasibility and/or safety study proposals. Selected studies will be conducted by OVRDC or consultants contracted by OVRDC or in conjunction with ODOT.

Interested entities should submit a proposal for a Transportation-Related Feasibility and/or Safety Study limited in scope so that the estimated study cost is less than $20,000. Consideration will be given to studies over $20,000 if an immediate safety concern is identified. Click here for a list of OVRDC Safety Feasibility Studies that have been funded in the past.

  • Safety
  • Active Transportation

  • Economic Impact
  • Traffic Count/Analysis
  • Complete Streets
