Contract description: The Washington State the Washington Traffic Safety Commission is issuing this Competitive Solicitation pursuant to RCW 39.26. Pursuant to this Competitive Solicitation, The Washington Traffic Safety Commission intends to conduct a competitive procurement to award a Technical Assistance Plan for Cooper Jones Active Transportation Safety Council (CJATSC) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transportation Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan, and Regional Active Transportation Plan Update Project.
The Washington Traffic Safety Commission’s (WTSC) Transportation budget received funding from the Cooper Jones Active Transportation Safety (ATSC) Account (RCW 46.68.480) in 2022, presenting an opportunity to fund non-motorist safety improvements administered by the Commission.
The revenue source for this project comes from Seattle’s pilot project to improve safety at intersections and ensure “transit only lane” compliance through use of automated safety cameras. The pilot project expires June 30, 2025. SB 5974 section 423 provides additional funding for the Cooper Jones Active Transportation Safety Account from revenue generated by the new automated safety cameras installed in school walk areas, park zones, hospital zones and at other locations.
This project supports implementation of Americans with Disabilities Act Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (ADATP) planning initiatives and furthers integrated active transportation planning efforts. It is the intent of the Active Transportation Safety Council that these funds benefit communities that experience the greatest resource barriers related to active transportation planning and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.
