RFP - Inner Loop North

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is being issued by the City for transportation planning, public outreach, engineering, and design services for an Inner Loop North Transformation Planning Study. The purpose of the planning study is to evaluate alternatives and advance recommendations for redesign of this outdated urban corridor.

The Inner Loop Expressway is a Principal Arterial Expressway on the National Highway System. The facility is owned and maintained by New York State and its frontage roads are primarily owned and maintained by the City of Rochester. The purpose of the planning study is to evaluate alternatives and advance recommendations for redesign of the corridor, which may including highway removal, similar to the recently completed and highly successful Inner Loop East Transformation project. The outcome of this planning study may present a need for multiple projects with phased funding and implementation plans.
