Following the 15-inch rainfall from Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, pavement separations formed along East Queen Street and the adjacent cemetery. The affected roadway along East Queen Street was repaved as part of a 112-foot roadway repair effort in 2017. In September 2018, Hurricane Florence produced almost 36-inches of rainfall in Elizabethtown, causing differential settling and shear stress planes to much a greater extent than the previous storm. The Town hopes to stabilize the existing cemetery, both north and south of Queen Street, so that it can be used for its intended purpose, while keeping the remains of the deceased protected and in place.


The Town is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to provide engineering design and construction administration and observation services associated with a project to repair the damaged cemetery. To stay in conformance with FEMA policies for funding, design shall follow the concepts presented in the final engineering recommendations from the feasibility study. Final design and construction should mitigate the risk of future soil movement of the stabilized area due to flooding and severe natural conditions.


Scope of Work

The desired engineering services that will be negotiated as part of a contract will include but are not necessarily limited to: project administration; surface water and groundwater collection and conveyance; survey services including topography, boundary, easements, cemetery grave markers and ground penetrating radar; geotechnical studies; soil foundation and structural design; construction plans/specifications/opinion of probable costs; environmental permitting; and construction administration and observation.


The selected consultant must be capable of providing additional services that may be required by the Town.
