Marine Highways RFP for Cost-Savings Calculator

Sunday, August 08, 2010

In 2009/2010, the Marine Highways Cooperative (MHC) conducted an MPO Information Needs Study. Based on this research, the MHC wishes to contract services to develop a user-friendly online calculator to help transportation planners determine the public benefits of new or expanded marine highway services.

Specifically, the MHC wishes to determine the annual cost savings in congestion, pollution, infrastructure development & maintenance, energy (fuel), and highway safety improvements over the first five years for new or expanded marine highway services.

You can request the RFP from Richard Lolich, MHC Program Administrator by emailing marinehighway@dot.gov. The MHC requests interested entities to submit questions by August 15, 2010.

You can also submit your technical and cost proposals electronically by 11:59 PM, August 29, 2010, to Richard Lolich.
