The Tuolumne County Transportation Council (TCTC) is soliciting qualifications to retain firms for professional engineering, regional traffic modeling, and transportation planning consulting services. The major objective of this project will be to develop various traffic studies and provide engineering and transportation planning consulting services for various projects.
The TCTC is considering a four-year retainer agreement with at least one qualified firm for professional engineering and transportation planning consulting services.
