Request for Proposals
Arlington Main Street Redesign Initiative
The Dutchess County Transportation Council seeks a Consultant to complete an Arlington Main Street Corridor Redesign Plan and Feasibility Study that will expand upon the recommendations suggested for CR 114 (Main Street) in the Arlington Town Center Pedestrian Plan. Completed in 2017, the Pedestrian Plan identified potential improvements to the Main Street corridor that would enhance its walkability, improve transportation safety, and enrich the local quality of life. With this follow-up effort, our intent is to develop a more detailed, implementable conceptual design for Main Street, identifying the specific issues, costs, and actions that will need to be considered to make the corridor a Complete Street. We expect this project to culminate in a consensus vision for the future design of Main Street, providing sufficient detail to pursue future project funding.
