Grizzly Island Trail Technical Studies RFP Issued

SUISUN CITY - Suisun City is planning to construct Grizzly Island Trail as part of an ongoing commitment to expand and improve the City's recreational trail system, and provide safe routes to school for residents of every neighborhood.

Grizzly Island Trail is designed to extend from Grizzly Island Road to Marina Boulevard and Driftwood Drive. This .9-mile concrete trail, will
  • Eliminate or minimize the need for students who attend Crescent Elementary School and Crystal Middle School to cross Highway 12 to reach a sidewalk or bike path.
  • Eliminate or minimize the need for Suisun City residents and visitors to cross Highway 12 when bicycling or walking to destinations on the south side of Highway 12, and to reduce the incidence of illegal/unsafe crossings of Grizzly Island Road and Marina Boulevard. These destinations include the Lawler Ranch neighborhood, the Lawler Ranch Commercial Area, the Waterfront District, and the multi-modal transit station, as well as the Solano County Offices and Downtown Fairfield.
  • Augment and complement the existing natural educational programs administered by the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District and the Suisun Resource Conservation District.
  • Provide a visual and recreational buffer between the Highway 12 corridor and the adjacent Suisun Marsh habitat to encourage viewing of wildlife and the marsh area.
To facilitate this project, the Suisun City Community Development Department has issued an RFP seeking professional consulting services from qualified firms or team of consultants to prepare a wide range of comprehensive environmental technical studies. Staff will use the resulting studies to complete environmental reviews required for the Trail project.

Proposals must be submitted by April 5, 2010.
