Please be advised that these files are for information only and should not be assumed to be accurate.  Information will be clarified in the Request for Proposals document when it is released.

REQUEST FOR LETTERS OF INTEREST FOR DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is soliciting Letters of Interest from companies interested in providing design-build services for the FARM Bridge Program in the Northeast and Northwest Districts.

The project’s primary purpose is to replace up to 41 deficient bridges across these two districts. These bridges are located on low-volume routes and are:

  • Weight-restricted
  • In poor condition
  • On timber pile
  • One-lane but carry two-way traffic

One design-build team will be selected to design and construct the project. MoDOT will use a best-value selection process to evaluate the ability of the design-build proposers to meet or exceed the following project goals:

  1. Safely deliver the project within the program budget of $21.98 million on or before October 31, 2023.
  2. Use innovation to maximize the number of locations to be addressed.
  3. Provide quality long-lasting structures.
  4. Minimize public inconvenience through increased construction speed and flexibility in scheduling.

A virtual information presentation is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 16, 2020.  A link to the meeting will be available on the project website, www.modot.org/farm-bridge-program.  It is anticipated the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) will be released on the same day as the presentation.

Firms interested in receiving FARM Bridge Program Design-Build information should send a one-page Letter of Interest to MoDOT by registered mail, or similar delivery method that indicates proof of receipt, no later than Monday, Nov. 9, 2020, to ensure that you receive all information. The Letters of Interest will allow MoDOT to compile a list of interested companies for notices and any announcements relating to the FARM Bridge Program Design-Build Project.

Address all letters to:
