The Town of Waynesville is requesting proposals to conduct a feasibility study to determine the alignment, right-of-way acquisition and environmental needs, and the scope of work, for the development of a multi-use trail from the Town’s Recreation Park to the Lake Junaluska Greenway (Project location map attached).  This section of trail will fill a gap in the Town of Waynesville’s greenway between Recreation Park and the south-eastern trailhead of the Lake Junaluska trail located in Waynesville Industrial Park.  The trail alignment area will include property the Town has already obtained, existing rights-of-way, and easements from one to several private property owners.  The study should build on the Town’s 2010 Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan and 2017 Trail Feasibility Study, as well as work underway to install a bridge across Richland Creek as part of the greenway plan. Information on Town planning documents and other greenway study materials may be found at: https://www.waynesvillenc.gov/departments/development-services/planning-documents-reports-maps.   The full RFP and Scope of Service is below. 

This project has received FHWA funding through the French Broad River Metropolitan Planning Organization (FBRMPO).  Once completed, the feasibility study will be utilized to pursue additional federal and state transportation funding for preliminary engineering and construction.  The contractor selected for the project will be required to be prequalified with NCDOT as a private consulting firm and will be required to follow all applicable federal rules and regulations.
