CSX Transportation Inc. is preparing modifications to the North Avenue Bridge on North Avenue in Baltimore. The up to $50-million design-build project is expected to begin in March and finish in July 2024. Clearance at the location will be achieved by replacing part of the bridge arch structure with a single-span, shallow steel girder bridge, with no change to the North Avenue roadway profile. Coordination with the city of Baltimore, Amtrak and the Maryland Transit Administration is anticipated. CSX plans to use a two-step design-build competitive selection process and a two-phase negotiated contract. The selected design-builder will advance the design during Phase 1 to enable the parties to negotiate a guaranteed-maximum-price contract for Phase 2. The request for qualifications is expected to be advertised in January 2022 with shortlisted design-builders to receive a request for proposals in the first quarter of 2022.
