the best price, shortest construction time, minimal dredging, and can accommodate mass transit in the future.

Such a bid should be immediately disqualified.

The classic offer from a reputable consultant is: "Fast production, Cheap production, Quality production -- pick any two".

You cannot have it all. Something has to give. If someone says they can give you everything you want, then they are lying, and they are knowingly expecting to screw you later.
