Submission of any information in response to this market survey is purely voluntary. The Government assumes no financial responsibility for any costs incurred.

The purpose of this sources sought synopsis is to gain knowledge of interest, capabilities and qualifications of the construction industry, namely the Small Business Community to include Section 8(a), Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), and Historically Underutilized (HUBZone) concerns. The Government must ensure there is adequate competition among the potential pool of responsible contractors.

Description of the Project

The project consists of returning the graded roadways and logging trams to a natural topographic profile based on the adjacent undisturbed ground; which would reestablish sheet flow. High spots that are not historic uplands, such as berms or spoil piles that obstruct or channelize flow are not acceptable.

Contractor is to remove and re-grade all east-west roads to level undisturbed ground logging trams and existing roads and adjacent ditches, swales and spoil for the base contract in the area bounded by Miller Canal to the east, the Tieback Levee to the north, 90th Avenue SE to the south and to the ends of the roads on the west. Miller Boulevard will not be degraded, however, the spoil and swales along Miller Blvd will be leveled to undisturbed ground. Heavy equipment involved in this work will be allowed to travel across and along Miller Blvd to do any of the road and logging tram removal work described in this document. Also, 68th Avenue SE will not be degraded, but the adjacent spoil and swales will be leveled. The contract will include two options: option 1 for removal and re-grade of all existing logging trams and east-west roads and their adjacent ditches and spoil in the area bounded by 92nd Avenue SE to the north, Miller Canal to the east, 112th Avenue SE to the south, and the ends of the east-west roads to the west. Miller Blvd will not be degraded, however, the spoil and swales along Miller Blvd will be leveled to undisturbed ground. The west ends of the east-west roads are variable. The roads west of Miller Blvd increase in length from 70th Ave SE (about 0.25 miles) to 128th Ave SE (about 0.35 miles) because the boundary of the project and Miller Blvd are not exactly parallel. Also, 66th and 68th Ave SE end about 1.25 miles west of the centerline of Miller Blvd. Portions of 126th Avenue SE west of Miller Blvd and 128th Avenue SE just east and west of Miller Blvd have adjacent rehabilitated agricultural hazardous waste sites and will not be degraded. These road sections will be clearly marked.

All of the roads, with the exception of the actual roadbeds along the rehabilitation sites mentioned above, will require degrading out to about 10 ft. beyond the spoil mounds. The width of the major roads to be cleared and degraded, including 100th and 128th, is typically ~260 ft., while widths for all other east-west roads to be cleared and degraded is typically ~160 ft.); however, these widths will vary somewhat. Before degrading, asphalt will be removed from 100th Ave SE and 128th Ave SE and stockpiled at site(s) on Picayune designated by the Contracting Officer. Contractor shall clear and grub along all roads within the limits of construction as shown in the planning documents. Vegetative debris from clearing shall be consolidated and burned. Any large woody remnants from burning the vegetation will be stockpiled along the Miller Canal for later placement in the remaining open pools after all available spoil has been placed in the Canal. Any human-made trash encountered on the construction footprints will be removed from the site for appropriate disposal.

The contractor shall fill the adjacent swales and road ditches to undisturbed ground using suitable material recovered from the adjacent existing roads and berms. The material placed in the adjacent swales and ditches will be compacted with heavy equipment during leveling of the site. Expect some-to-many large boulders to be encountered.

Any culverts encountered shall be removed and disposed. An example of the approximate location of the culverts and their approximate length is shown in the attached figure. The culverts are oval shaped approximately 12 inches high and 24 inches wide, are corrugated steel, and many have collapsed and been filled to level the road.

Logging trams will typically have vegetation cleared out to a width of ~75 ft., after which the raised trams and adjacent swales will be leveled to the adjacent natural grade beyond the construction footprint. The vegetation will initially be placed along the edge of the footprint. After the construction footprint is leveled, the woody vegetation will be lined up along the centerline of the cleared footprint with none of the material being more than 3 ft. above the ground surface, except for large root balls. None of the greater than 6 inch diameter logs should be more than 10 ft. long, and there will be 20 ft. wide gaps in the line of vegetation at least every 100-200 ft. If a logging tram is not accessible from Miller Blvd or one of the east-west roads, it should be accessed from the spoil along the Miller Canal.

After completion of the road and logging tram removal and degrading, the contractor shall perform a survey of the length of the area to establish the extent of construction for payment. The contractor is responsible for measurement of the length of road/tram road removal.

East-west road removal south of the tie-back levee west of Miller Canal (Miller Boulevard excluded).
