Notices, Bids and Requests for Proposal




The Village of Franklin Park, Illinois (“Village”) invites the submission of Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) from professional design and engineering services firms (“Respondents”) for Phase 1 and Phase 2 Engineering for the “Wolf Road at Addison Avenue Intersection Improvement Project”, as well as Phase 1 and Phase 2 Engineering for the “Runge Road Reconstruction between Franklin Avenue and Addison Avenue” (collectively “Projects”). The intent of the SOQ is to identify qualified Respondents having demonstrated experience, expertise and resources to provide the requested services as further described in the Project Scope.


The Village is requesting statements of qualifications from qualified professional engineering consultants to prepare and obtain approval for a Phase 1 intersection design study and project development report for the Wolf Road at Addison Avenue Project, Phase 1 plans for the Runge Avenue Reconstruction Project as well as Phase 2 design and preparation of construction plans, specifications, and contract documents for the Projects.


Wolf Road at Addison Avenue

The area encompassing Wolf Road and Addison Avenue serves as a critical transportation artery facilitating the movement of goods and services throughout the region. With the impending completion of the Interstate 490 Tollway, concerns regarding capacity, traffic flow, and driver safety are anticipated to escalate, particularly with the introduction of new access points to the Tollway system. Current challenges such as inadequate spacing for safe turning maneuvers, limited sight lines, and resultant congestion due to queuing delays are pressing issues that are expected to worsen with the implementation of new access routes to Interstate 490 and the growth of the adjacent industrial park.

To address these challenges, the Village of Franklin Park is initiating preliminary engineering efforts to modernize this intersection. The proposed enhancements entail widening and signalizing the intersection to enhance capacity and safely facilitate truck turning maneuvers. Additionally, the project aims to improve access for Pace buses and enhance facilities for cyclists and pedestrians.

Runge Avenue Reconstruction

The Runge Avenue reconstruction project involves a reconstruction of the pavement spanning from Franklin Avenue to Addison Avenue. The Canadian Pacific Kansas City Southern (CPKCS) Railroad has recently finished enhancing the grade crossing within the project area, therefore no additional improvements to the crossing are necessary. All enhancements along Runge Avenue are anticipated to be contained within the existing curbs of the roadway.

Statements of Qualification are due no later than March 25, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. addressed to: Village of Franklin, 9500 Belmont Avenue, Franklin Park, IL 60131 Attention: Village Engineer.
