Seeking the drainage/gravel road contractors in PA

Hi everyone, I wonder if someone can give me some tips in the following situation:

We own a small park in the Greater Pittsburgh area . Park is located on the hill and has two major issues:

1) gravel road condition (it has potholes and unsufficient drainage which caused the road practically disappear);

2) flooding of basements when it rains in storage building and few mobile homes.

I am having a problem to find a contractor who can help to fix those issues. I contacted the following types of companies from bbb, manta and yellow pages: excavating, drainage, landscaping, roads.

The current state is:

a) A lot of the contractors I contacted have told that they are overbooked for the next few months and refused to even look at the park to give a quote for the future. It’s hard to believe that excavating/drainage companies are so overbooked that they aren’t interested in a new clients.

b) The guys who expressed interest in our project and came to see our park haven't sent any quotes. I don't know the reason as they didn't take phone since their visits. Our manager on-site (I am out-of-state) who met those guys also don't have any ideas why the contractors haven't provided any quotes.

I can’t understand the reason why any of the contractors who saw our park didn’t provide a quote.

c) There were a few contractors who arranged meetings but have never showed up.

Bottom line - I am stuck. I already spent 3 months and contacted x contractors and I still don’t have an idea which type of contractor can solve those issues, what needs to be done, and how much would it cost.

All thoughts, recommendations and ideas are highly appreciated.
