Interested parties are expected to review this Notice and the Project Requirements to familiarize themselves with the requirements of this project. Background: The Brandon Road Interbasin Project (BRIP) is located immediately downstream of the Brandon Road Lock and Dam as shown in Figure 1. The navigation lock is located near Illinois Waterway River Mile No. 286 on the Des Plaines River in the City of Joliet, Illinois in Will County. The BRIP was developed to control the upstream transfer of aquatic nuisance species (ANS) at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam on the Des Plaines River. The overall project has several components including an Engineered Channel (EC) in the area immediately downstream of the Brandon Road Lock and a flushing lock feature added to the lock itself as shown in Figure 2. Within the EC, several deterrents are proposed to be further modeled, developed, and designed and include: (1) electric deterrent; (2) acoustic fish deterrents; and (3) air bubble deterrent s, with additional EC area for future deterrent technologies. Other features of the overall project include boat ramps upstream and downstream of Brandon Road Lock and Dam to provide access to the waterway for monitoring, utility installations to support the project, and buildings and other support facilities on either the right or left banks or both. The entirety of the project has been divided into three (3) separate design and construction increments, specifically Risk Reduction Increments 1, 2 and 3, with Increment 1 further divided to include the focus of this sources sought, Increment I-A. See Figure 1 Site Location See Figure 2 Current 10% Design Layout Project Requirements: Increment 1-A of the project was established to incorporate the leading-edge ANS deterrents and provide a first phase construction timeline. The leading-edge technologies include an Automated Barge Clearing (ABC) Deterrent, air bubble deterrents and narrow speaker arrays. These leading-edge deterrents are to be constructed in the Des Plaines River immediately downstream or just within the approach channel. Leading-edge deterrent facility support buildings, access road and parking/turnaround area, site utilities and the upstream boat ramp and access road are also included as part of Increment I-A. This will be a construction contract to be primarily constructed during 2023-2024.

Experience coordinating critical manufacturing, delivery, and installation of major site components to meet schedule. NAICS Code and Size Standard: In the event an RFP is issued, North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 237310 with a size standard of $36.5M is being considered.
