Design-Build Information

General

As per Sec. 227.107, RSMo, MoDOT was given the authority for three pilot projects using the design-build project delivery technique: The New I-64, kcICON and the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program. Each was completed ahead of schedule and on, or under, budget.

Subsequently, the statute was amended to give MoDOT the opportunity to enter into design-build contracts on no more than two percent of the total number of all state highway system projects awarded to contracts for construction from projects listed in the commission’s approved statewide transportation improvement project for that state fiscal year.

Design-build is a delivery method that includes hiring one contracting team to complete the design work and build the highway improvement under one contract. MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule and the contractor team completes the work. This technique has been known to significantly save time and provide cost savings.

Projects with Scoping Only

 

The purpose of this section is to identify potential future highway and bridge projects. These projects may be in the evaluation stage, which is called project scoping, or may be further along in the preliminary design process. Projects listed in this section are not commitments to construct or implement an improvement. These commitments won’t be made until the NEPA process is completed. These projects are being included in the STIP for the scoping or preliminary design phase only, and subsequent phases have not yet been determined or are beyond the STIP horizon period.
