Three Teams Short-Listed For Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation has evaluated, rated and short-listed three teams from whom it received Statements of Qualification to compete for the contract to replace more than 550 Missouri bridges.

"We are very pleased that the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program will proceed with three qualified teams. The teams include companies with a blend of strong local, national and international reputations and bring considerable design-build experience to the project," said MoDOT Director Pete Rahn. "We look forward to working through the procurement process in the coming months to select the best team to replace 554 bridges at the best value for the State of Missouri."

*There are still opportunities for additional firms to be added to each team. No team listed as "Additional Team Members" are contractually obligated to be a member of any team at this time. Their listing here is merely an indication that these firms have demonstrated an interest to assist with the project.

MoDOT's Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program will improve the condition of more than 800 of the state's worst bridges in a five-year period. MoDOT identified 248 of those for rehabilitation projects and is contracting those improvements through its normal processes.  The remaining 554 bridges in the design-build package will be replaced.

The design-build project delivery method combines both the design and construction phases into one contract. The team selected will be expected to bring innovation to the project in order to save time and resources.

MoDOT will issue a final version of the Draft Request for Proposal on December 16. The three teams will use this information to prepare their plans for how they will approach completion of the project. The contractor should be selected in May 2009 and construction could start soon after.

MoDOT estimates that the cost of design and construction for all 802 bridges - those being done conventionally as well as the replacements included in the design-build package - to be about $700 million. The department will sell bonds to finance the project, and will repay them using about one-third of its annual federal bridge funds - about $50 million per year.
