QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS POSTED 3/6/2020
Question 1: Typically, for cities, we include all non-freeway roadways in the analysis, but for counties, we often exclude the Caltrans roadways because they carry so much of the traffic, and it’s harder to get attention on the county owned roadways. What is the County’s preference?
Answer: Please include all “non-freeway” state highways in the development of Ventura County’s LRSP. However, to avoid overemphasizing high crash state highway locations, please consider a “peer-based” screening of high crash locations such that high crash records at state highway locations are compared and ranked against similar state highway locations.
Similarly, such peer-based screening of high crash frequency may be also applied to unincorporated County roadways.
Question 2: The background section of the LRSP referenced a document that was supposed to be made available to all prospective consultants. But the report is not included as attachment in the RFQ. How can I get a copy of that report?
Answer: The reference document called “Ventura County Complete Streets Safety Assessment” (Ventura County CSSA) is available to all prospective consultants upon request. Please email your request to receive a copy of this report to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Question 3: Are the consultants who prepared the Ventura County CSSA precluded from submitting SOQ for this project, either as a prime or sub-consultant?
Answer: There is no precluded consultants including the authors of Ventura County CSSA report.
