The purpose of this Notice is to advise potential offerors that the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is planning to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Programmatic General Engineering Consultant Services (GEC) for the I-495 & I-270 Public-Private Partnership (P3) Program. The Technical Proposals will be combined as a single step with the Expression of Interest.
The National Capital region is one of the most congested regions in the country with some of the highest commuting times. To address this congestion, MDOT SHA is developing potential improvements along I-495 from south of the American Legion Bridge in Virginia to east of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and along I-270 from I-495 to I-70 including the I-270 east and west spurs. This monumental program to keep Maryland citizens and the economy growing and thriving is being developed for delivery as a P3. MDOT SHA is very focused on working with the absolute best and most innovative company and/or teams and collaborating on the delivery of this effort; ultimately redefining the way these projects are delivered across the country with private sector innovation including maximized efficiency and creativity.
MDOT SHA expects to issue the RFP for the GEC in support of the P3 Program on or about July 25, 2018, and a Pre-Proposal meeting will be held on or about August 15, 2018. Technical Proposals in response to the RFP will be due on or about September 6, 2018.
Additional information regarding the Pre-Proposal meeting and Technical Proposal requirements will be contained in the RFP.
