RFP: Design/Build for Singletrack Trail at East High School

Posted August 1st, 2018.
Responses due September 1st, 2018.

BikeWalkKC partners with KC Public Schools’ East High School campus for Bike Club and Earn-A-Bike programs. We are seeking proposals for design/build of a new singletrack trail for biking, hiking, and cross-country usage by the East High students and the adjacent community.

We will construct an on-site, winding single-track trail for students and community members to utilize and enjoy a diverse outdoor experience. The trail will primarily be used by the Agriculture Club, Bike Club, and the Cross Country team, but will be available to all students and staff, and eventually the nearby community.

The land reserved for the trail, on the northern portion of EHS’ property, is comprised of an open prairie field, urban orchard, and densely wooded areas. See aerial picture below. The wooded areas will require extensive honeysuckle removal, brush clearing, cleanup of illegal dumping, and reintroduction of native plant species.
