RFP - Freeway Crossing Retrofit

Washtenaw Area Transportation Study is seeking proposals to evaluate short and medium-term solutions to improve non-motorized access at freeway crossings in Washtenaw County.  WATS intends, through this RFP, to provide Washtenaw Communities with a resource that :

  • Documents freeway crossing needs of the transportation system

  • Identifies different treatments to achieve safety improvements based on the type of crossing

  • Provide basic “rule of thumb” cost estimates for feasible treatment types

The complete Request for Proposals can be found here.

The objective of this project is to plan for the future of bikeshare in the Ann Arbor area transitioning from a pilot phase to a sustainable service program.


The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a 4-year financial program that describes the schedule for obligating federal funds to state and local projects.  The TIP contains funding information for all modes of transportation including highways, transit capital, and operating costs.  State, regional and local transportation agencies update the program each year to reflect priority projects in the LRP. The 2020-2023 TIP was developed in partnership with local transportation agencies, SEMCOG and MDOT. WATS Policy Committee will take action on the 2020-2023 TIP at their June 19, 2019 meeting. State and federal approval is anticipated in August 2019.  Click here to view the 2020-2023 TIP.
