El Paso, TX —  Industry Review Planned

October 2014

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) in El Paso, Texas, announced plans to host industry review meetings the week of November 10th to gather industry input on the El Paso Streetcar Project, an urban streetcar system currently in the final design phase. The streetcar system will link the International Bridges, downtown, the Cincinnati Entertainment District and University of Texas at El Paso, among other area attractions. Construction will consist of approximately 4.8 miles of track, 27 streetcar stops, related street improvements, and a vehicle maintenance and storage facility near the existing Sun Metro Downtown Transfer Center. The planned procurement will include streetcar vehicles (reconstruction of existing cars and/or delivery of replicas).

A Request for Information (RFI) seeking industry input will be issued on or about October 13, 2014, and will include project information, reference information documents, RFI submission requirements, and a feedback questionnaire for respondents who will have the opportunity to meet in person with project representatives in a one-on-one format. Project representatives intend to solicit confidential industry comments about the proposed details of project procurement, design, testing, and start-up.

A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for contractor teams will be issued shortly after the industry reviews and may take into consideration information gathered during the referenced one-on-one meetings. Participation in the RFI process is not a requirement to respond to the RFQ when issued.

Tentative Industry Review Schedule:

• October 13, 2014. RFI announcement.
• November 7, 2014. Responses to RFI questionnaire due.
• November 10-12, 2014. Conduct one-on-one meetings with scheduled industry participants.

The RFI will be available to view through multiple agencies and other outlets, which may include: www.crrma.org, Texas AGC, Texas CEC, www.apta.com, www.elpasotexas.gov, and the project contact list. For direct notice and future information updates, interested parties are encouraged to provide their contact information to the project email address, elpasostreetcar@urs.com.
