and Work Plan
Project Understanding
Progressive AE is excited to co ll aborate w ith the City of Muskegon and MOOT to develop a conceptual plan to
reduce the roadway footprint of Shore line Drive. The existing roadway sect ion in the project area consists of a
boulevard section with two thru lanes in each direction plus auxiliary lanes at severa l intersect ions . We account
for six (6) signali zed intersections and four (4) unsignalized intersections within the project limits. Progressive AE
understands the purpose of the project is to reduce the roadway footprint of Shore lin e Drive to one thru lane in
each direction w ith auxi liary lanes at the intersections. We also understand this conceptual plan wi ll be geared
towards temporary measures and w ill be used on a pilot basis to test the concept for a potential future road diet.

Our team w ill develop a conceptual plan that will provide aesthetic benefits and traffic ca lmin g measures that wi ll
be permitted by MOOT. We wi ll includ e features that wi ll increase pedestrian cross ing accessibility and w ill also be
easily removed if needed.

Once a conceptua l plan has been approved Progressive wi ll develop bid documents for final design. After
implementation we will develop a final report that wi ll outlin e the success and failures of the pilot project. We will
co ll ect data and feedback from respective agencies and make recommendations.

Project Approach:
Based upon the five (5) tasked out lin ed in the RFP, we will provide the following scope of services:

Task 1 - Data Review
It is our responsibility to perform our due diligence to co ll ect and rev iew all existing documents. plans. and data
as it pertains to the corridor. In addition to local data, it is imperative to id ent ify current state transportation
requirements and guidelines. We wi ll obtain. review and compi le as-built records, existing traffic count data and
other documents to be referenced in the Summary Report.

Task 2 - Kickoff Meeting
 In partnership w ith the City of Muskegon. our team wi ll develop a li st of stakeho ld ers recommended to form the
Project Management Team (PMT). The PMT will be comprised of representatives from the City of Muskegon. MOOT,
MATS. and other app li cab le agencies . The purpose of the kickoff meeting is to review existing and needed data,
identify missing data and develop a timeline for development of the conceptua l plans. After eva lu at ion of the
exist in g data the PMT w ill discuss any add it ion traffic ana lys is needed before the impl ementat ion of the pilot project.
PAE assumes that pre limi nary modeling has been performed by MOOT and the project intent is to confirm the
modeling and identify alternate routes.

Task 3 - Conceptual Planning
Upon the comp let ion of the Kickoff Meeting, our team wi ll begin developing the conceptua l plan for Shorelin e Drive.
The conceptual planning wil l include the fo ll owing:

  • Analyze the existing facilities. create preliminary project plans show ing locations of lane closures. generate a
    proposed cross-section, investigate improvin g pedestrian safety at intersections.

  • Recommend traffic control devices suitab le to both MOOT and the City.

  • Refine p lans and devices based on feedback from MOOT and the City to develop a finalized plan for

  • Ana lyze existing and proposed traffi c pattern s and identify likely diversion routes to be consid ered . Set up
    traffic monitoring equipment on divers ion route s to determin e the extent of traffic that was diverted.

  • Identify any areas of concern w here the reduced footpr int may not be practical.

  • Our team w ill host an open-house style meeting to present the preliminary p lans to the preliminary p lans to the
    pub li c and project stakeho lders for feedback.

Task 4 - Bidding and Implementation
Progress ive AE w ill assist the City in obta ining bids for any item s no t ed fo r bidding. We w ill ass ist on comp leting
permit app li ca tio ns and subm ittals of all perm it packages. We w ill help adm ini ste r and mon itor t he permit rev iew
process and exped ite all perm its w heneve r possible . We w ill be ava il ab le t o answer all RF ls inquires that arise
during the bidding, permitting, and im p lementatio n pha ses. We wi ll review any shop drawings submitted from the
contractor an d ens ure all materials meet c urrent standards.

Our team w ill host a pre- in sta ll ation meeting at o ur Muskego n office w ith all parties for final review of the
implementation procedure. At thi s meeting we w ill ta lk about work site safety and staging. We wi ll review fina l
insta ll atio n drawings and discuss suggested m aintenance of traffic durin g in sta ll ation.

Progressive AE w ill prov id e oversig ht during th e initial insta ll at ion to ensure t he project is constructed per approved
final p lans. We will have qualifi ed staff on site during all stage s of in sta ll at ion of roadway im provements.

Task 5 - Summary Report
Our team w ill prepare and execute a survey to seek feedback from motorist. nearby res idents and businesses,
and other stakeho lders. Progressive AE wi ll also ana lyze all data and findings from the pi lot road diet project and
prepa re a report summ ariz in g all findings. Our summary repo rt w ill inclu de the following:

  • Executive Summary which w ill include recommendations on the viab ility of the project

  • Summ ary of stakeho lder find in gs with full re sponses in the appendi x.

  • Areas of Shore lin e Drive where we found issues or concerns due to t he reduced footpr int.

  • Observed and pote ntia l tra ffi c diversion routes.

  • Insta ll atio n plans w hi ch in clude typica l sect ions, pavement marking, signage, and traffi c signa l revisions .

Our team is comm itted to working in partnership the City of Mu skegon and MDOT to develop a successfu l pilot
program to reduce the roadway footp rint and p rovid e im proved pedestrian cross in gs for Shore lin e Drive. Our
find in gs w ill be in st ru mental for a potenti al future road diet on Shoreline Drive. We und ersta nd the schedu le for this
project and are dedicated to m eet th e tim eline provided in the RFP understanding that the final summary report to
submitted to the City in December 2022. Please see our proposed tentative schedul e on the next pages to ach ieve

The parties to this agreement, Progressive AE, Inc., Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, hereinafter
called the ENGINEER and City of Muskegon, Muskegon, Michigan, USA, hereinafter called the
OWNER, hereby agree to the following conditions:

1.   Limit of Scope: The services provided by the ENGINEER shall be limited to those described in
     the proposal dated March 29, 2022. The parties agree that the terms of the proposal are
     incorporated herein by reference, and are part of this agreement as if fully set forth herein. If
     any terms set forth in the proposal are expressly in conflict with the terms hereof, the terms of
     the proposal shall govern.

2.   Changed Conditions: If, during the term of this Agreement, the ENGINEER becomes aware of
     any circumstances or conditions that were not originally contemplated by or known to the
     ENGINEER, then to the extent that they affect the scope of services, compensations, schedule,
     allocation of risks or other material terms of this Agreement, the ENGINEER may call for re-
     negotiation of appropriate portions of the Agreement. The ENGINEER shall notify the OWNER
     of the changed conditions necessitating re-negotiation, and the ENGINEER and the OWNER
     shall promptly and in good faith enter into re-negotiation of this Agreement to address the
     changed conditions. If terms cannot be agreed to, the parties agree that either party has the
     absolute right to terminate this Agreement.

3.   Delays: The OWNER agrees that the ENGINEER is not responsible for any damages arising
     directly or indirectly from any delays for causes beyond the ENGINEER's control. For purposes
     of this Agreement, such causes include, but are not limited to, strikes or other labor disputes;
     severe weather disruptions, epidemics, pandemics or other natural disasters or acts of God;
     fires, riots, war or other emergencies; failure of any government agency to act in a timely
     manner; failure of performance by OWNER or the OWNER's contractors or consultants; or
     discovery of any hazardous substance or differing site conditions.

     In addition, if the delays resulting from any such causes increase the cost or time required by
     the ENGINEER to perform its services in an orderly and efficient manner, the ENGINEER shall
     be entitled to a reasonable adjustment in schedule and compensation.

4.   Additional Services: Additional services not specifically identified in the Scope of Services shall
     be paid for by the OWNER in addition to the fees previously stated, provided the OWNER
     authorizes such additional services in writing. Special services will be billed monthly as work
     progresses and invoices are due upon receipt. If services covered by this agreement have not
     been completed within eight (8) months of the date of this agreement, through no fault of the
     ENGINEER, extension of the ENGINEER'S services beyond that time shall be compensated
     as additional services.

5.   Standard of Care: Professional Services provided by the ENGINEER will be conducted in a
     manner consistent with that level of care ordinarily and normally exercised by licensed
     ENGINEERs and engineers practicing in the State where the Project resides. The OWNER
     and ENGINEER agree that a contingency in the amount of three percent (3%) of the cost of
     the work be established, as required, for changes that may be required because of possible
     omissions, ambiguities, or inconsistencies in plans and specifications.

6.   Value-Added/Betterment: If, due to the ENGINEER's error, any required item or component
     of the project is omitted from the ENGINEER's Construction documents, the ENGINEER shall
     not be responsible for paying the cost to add such item or components to the extent that such
     item or component would have otherwise been necessary to the project tor otherwise adds
     value or betterment to the project. In no event will the ENGINEER be responsible for any cost
     or expenses that provides value, upgrade, or enhancement of the project.

7.   Hazardous Materials: The ENGINEER shall have no responsibility for the discovery, presence,
     handling, removal or disposal of, or exposure of persons to, hazardous materials or toxic
     substances in any form at the Project site. The Owner shall furnish tests, inspections and
     reports required by law or the Contract Documents, such as structural, mechanical, and
     chemical tests, tests for air and water pollution, and tests for hazardous materials.

8.   Condominium Conversion: If the ENGINEER's services and Construction Documents are
     intended for the design and construction of residential rental units, they shall be under the
     ownership and control of a single, integrated OWNER. In the event the Project is changed to
     any other purpose or use, including, but not limited to, subdivision into individual units for sale,
     the ENGINEER shall have no responsibility, and shall be released from all obligations and
     liabilities for the Project, and each and every right, license and/or ownership interest of the
     OWNER of the Construction Documents shall be void. The OWNER shall be expressly
     prohibited from making any further use of the Construction Documents for any purpose,
     including, but not limited to, the conversion of the Project to another purpose. Further, the
     OWNER agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify, immediately defend, and
     hold harmless the ENGINEER, its officers, directors, employees and subconsultants
     (collectively, ENGINEER) against all damages, liabilities or costs, including reasonable
     attorney's fees and defense costs, arising out of or in any way connected with the services
     performed under this Agreement.

9.   Opinions of Probable Construction Cost: In providing opinions of probable construction cost,
     the OWNER understands that the ENGINEER has no control over the cost or availability of
     labor, equipment or materials, or over market conditions or the Contractor's method of pricing,
     and that the ENGINEER's opinions of probable construction costs are made on the basis of
     the ENGINEER's professional judgment and experience. The ENGINEER makes no warranty,
     express or implied that the bids or the negotiated cost of the Work will not vary from the
     ENGINEER's opinion of probable construction cost.

10. Schedule for Rendering Services: The ENGINEER shall prepare and submit for OWNER
    approval a schedule for the performance of the ENGINEER's services. This schedule shall
    include reasonable allowances for review and approval times required by the OWNER,
    performance of services by the OWNER's consultants, and review and approval times required
    by public authorities having jurisdiction over the project. This schedule shall be equitably
    adjusted as the project progresses, allowing for changes in scope, character or size of the
    project requested by the OWNER, or for delays or other causes beyond the ENGINEER's
    reasonable control.

11. Ownership of Reports, Drawings and Other Materials: The OWNER agrees that all reports,
    drawings, letters, worksheets, plans, preliminary material tables, supportive data, documents
    and other materials produced by the ENGINEER in the course of and for the purpose of
    meeting this contract are the property of the ENGINEER, shall remain in the possession of the
    ENGINEER and the ENGINEER has and retains all copyrights in such material. Upon
    execution of this Agreement, the ENGINEER grants to the Owner a nonexclusive license to
    reproduce the ENGINEER's Instrument of Service solely for the purposes of constructing, using
    and maintaining the Project provided that the Owner shall comply with all obligations including
    the prompt payment of all sums when due, under this Agreement.

12. Alteration and Reuse of CAD Information: Because computer-aided design/drafting (CAD)
    information stored in electronic form can be modified by other parties, intentionally or otherwise,
    without notice or indication of said modifications, the ENGINEER reserves the right to remove
    all indications of its ownership and/or involvement in the material from each electronic medium
    not held in its possession. The OWNER may retain copies of the work performed by the
    ENGINEER in CAD form. Release of electronic media will be by execution of the ENGINEER's
    Release of Electronic Media Request Form. Copies shall be for information and used by the
    OWNER for the specific purpose for which the ENGINEER was engaged. Said material shall
