Rathwell Sidewalk RFP - Broadway Street




The Municipality of Norfolk Treherne is inviting requests for proposal to remove, frame and pour a new sidewalk with rolled curb in Rathwell, Manitoba. The objective is to have this work completed by October 15, 2017.


Sidewalk removal and replacement is required for a ½ block on Broadway Street in Rathwell, MB (from backlane of Railway Ave to hydro pole on north side of Rathwell Community Hall). This section of sidewalk has suffered from heaving and breaking up in many spots. 

  1. Remove approximately 243’ linear feet of sidewalk that is 7 ½ feet wide.

  2. 20’ of back lane (behind Post Office) must be returned to gravel (match area conditions). All materials must be supplied by contractor and finished appropriately.

  3. Supply and install approximately 223’ linear feet of rolled curb with 4” thick sidewalk (maximum width being 7 ½ feet) that includes:

  1. Extra 2” depth at driveway crossing (one 20’ approach to grey tin paint shop) with appropriate sloping and tie ins to existing pad to allow for ground level access.

  2. Rebar

    1. 24” on centre #10mm width ways

    2. 4 rounds #10mm lengthways

  3. 6” base gravel

  4. All labour

  5. Concrete must be a minimum of 5500psi with air.

It is expected that the named contractor would supply fill and seed to grass (sidewalk edges) as well as remove crumbling sidewalk, frame, prep, pour and seal new sidewalk with curb.  Old sidewalk concrete will be kept by the Municipality and piled at the Rathwell Public Work shop. Feel free to list any recommendations to enhance the project & quote seperately if felt items were missed.
