Municipal Assistance Bureau - Local Projects

Municipal Assistance Bureau (MAB) technical staff is assigned to work with, and support, the municipalities in the development of projects while providing oversight and guidance to ensure projects are developed in accordance with applicable design standards and federal and state regulations. Projects can reach into every area of transportation such as: stormwater improvement projects, development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities along with educational outreach, municipal park and ride facilities, bridge improvements, roadway and intersection improvements, and a variety of transportation enhancements. In addition, the Better Roads program offers municipalities the opportunity to work with experienced and qualified staff to improve and enhance local roads through grant opportunities in part to help meet their obligations under the Municipal Roads General Permit. Also included is information on grant awards through the Town Highway Grant Program.

Please take some time to look through the resources provided in the "Shared Documents and Templates" section as well as the "FHWA Federal-Aid Essentials".

RFQ Change #2 - LPA's At-the-Ready Consultant Services 2020 (Click Here)

The State of Vermont, acting through the Municipal Assistance Bureau of the Agency of Transportation (VTrans), is requesting submission of qualifications from consultants to assist municipalities with At-the-Ready (‘ATR’) services for a variety of local transportation improvement projects. 

This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from VTrans, and any responses by interested consultants, represent the first stage of a two-stage process. No contract between a consultant and VTrans will result from this RFQ, but VTrans will use responses to this RFQ to make a determination of which consultants are the most qualified to assist municipalities, who will then be listed on a publicly-available Qualified Roster (“Roster”) for local government transportation projects.

The second stage will take place via a Request for Proposals (RFP) from a municipality to a consultant on the Qualified Roster. 

This RFQ is soliciting proposals in three major categories:  Design, Municipal Project Management, and Construction Inspection.
