NEIWPCC and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program invite proposals for projects that will help communities restore aquatic organism passage (AOP) and habitat connectivity, reduce localized flood risks, and improve water quality in and along Hudson River estuary tributaries.
Specifically, this RFP seeks proposals to design and/or construct AOP improvements and road stream crossing (RSX) replacements and retrofits in the Hudson River estuary watershed. RSX include bridges, culverts, arches, and other similar structures that allow water to pass under infrastructure that would otherwise block the natural flow of rivers and streams. Two project types will be considered: RSX final engineering design plans to replace or retrofit a RSX, and, RSX replacement and retrofit projects.
Total funding for this work is $200,000 for up to two proposals. Applications must be received by April 12.
