General Statement of Work: The 48th Avenue Storm Interceptor project was identified as a key project to relieve drainage problems in the Globeville neighborhood and serves the Globeville/Utah Junction basin (Basin 0059-01). A drainage analysis and conceptual design was completed as part of the Globeville Stormwater Systems Study (GSSS) – Final Draft December 2019. The general project alignment starts at Lincoln Street and 48th Avenue, passes through Argo Park, under the BNSF railway, along Elgin Place, crosses Washington Street, and then continues along 48th Avenue to a new outfall into the South Platte River. It is intended that the downstream portion from the west side of Washington Street to the South Platte River (Phase 1) will be designed and constructed in advance of any other phases of the project. The project will include preliminary design (30%) and up to 60% design for the 48th Avenue corridor but will only prepare the final design (90% and 100%) for Phase 1.

Minority and Women Business Enterprise Participation: Article III, Division 3 of Chapter 28 of the D.R.M.C. directs the Director of DSBO to establish a project goal for expenditure on construction, reconstruction, remodeling, professional and design work contracted by the City and County of Denver. The goal that has been assigned to this procurement is 15% M/WBE.

Project goals must be met with certified participants as set forth in Section 28-63, D.R.M.C. or through the demonstration of a sufficient good faith effort under Section 28-64 D.R.M.C.  A draft utilization plan is a required submittal as part of the response to this RFQ and it will be scored. DSBO’s approval of the utilization plan will be required prior to receiving an executed contract or notice to proceed.


As the City’s best interests may appear, the Manager of the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure reserves the right to waive informalities in, and to reject any or all, proposals.
