Project Description:

The Norfolk District, Corps of Engineers is conducting Market Research to identify potential Sources for the McPherson Area Roads Reconstruction Project in Arlington National Cemetery (ANC), VA.

The scope of this project includes replacing approximately 9,500LF of existing curbs & gutters, roadway, sub grade, inlets, drain pipes, and necessary under drains on the south-west area of the cemetery. Associated roads include: McPherson Drive, Farragut Drive, Jackson Circle, Lawton Drive, Capron Drive, McKinley Drive, Miles Drive, Hobson Drive, and section of Grant Drive. Scope also includes intersection of adjacent roads up to the nearest drain inlet, as required to facilitate drain line work, and storm water drain line replacement. New conduit and hand hole boxes shall be installed for a future WI-FI system. Finishing grading and sod shall be installed on all disturbed areas.

Drain lines, drain inlets, manholes, and roadway reconstructed to current VDOT standards or as otherwise specified by ANC requirements. Care must be taken to protect trees and root systems along the roadways. Staging areas shall be within the construction areas. Implement Project Phasing that will minimize impacts pedestrian traffic and cemetery operations.

ANC is not only our Nations Most Sacred Shrine but is also now a Nationally-recognized Level III Arboretum so the quality of landscape materials and installation is a critical success factor.


Besides the objectives identified in the Project Narrative above. There are several planning factors that should be considered when developing response.

1) The McPherson Area Roads Reconstruction project is critical to the operations of the cemetery. Road reconstruction anticipated to be very close to existing burial and monument areas, and in potential archaeological historic areas of interest. Due to these considerations, anticipate high visibility of the project, including frequent RFIs regarding status and progress, as well as random appearances by senior government officials and 3rd Party Archaeologists to monitor progress and ask questions. Monthly reports with time-lapse photo and video of the project will be expected.

2) Contractors should expect atypical work hours and possibly multiple shifts. With up to 30 funerals taking place between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM. Contractors could expect delays in the performance of noise producing construction. Some of the work would be expected to be performed during the off hours of Arlington National Cemetery.

3) Noise Consideration. Given that Arlington National Cemetery will be maintaining normal operations throughout the duration of this contract, contractors would be expected to use the least noise disturbing method practical in order to not disturb those who are attending gatherings in the project area.

4) Timely completion of schedule. Given the high visibility of the project and impact to vehicular and pedestrian traffic, completion of this project on time will be one of the most important factors, right behind quality. However, even though scheduling is one of the most important factors, it is not at the expense in obtaining a fair and reasonable price.

5) Site Location: Arlington National Cemetery, One Memorial Ave, Arlington, VA.

The anticipated period of performance is as follows:
Pre-Performance Administration: up to 60 calendar days
Construction Duration: 365 calendar days.
Closeout Administration: up to 60 calendar days
