Mid-Missouri ADA Project Moves Forward with Shortlist Announcement


JEFFERSON CITY - Following an extensive evaluation process, two qualified teams have been selected to compete for the contract to design and construct Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements along state roadways in central Missouri.

The purpose of this project is to complete the current Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) ADA Transition plan in 19 counties in the Central and Northwest Districts, bringing dozens of locations into ADA compliance. The cost of the work is estimated to be around $23.1 million.

“We are very pleased with the interest we received in joining us to work on the MidMO ADA project. The two short-listed teams are both very experienced and capable of producing a successful project,” said Project Director Chris Brownell. “We look forward to moving forward in the process and selecting the final design-build team.” 

The following teams (in no particular order) were selected to further develop their proposals on the project:

  • MidMO ADA Partners Team – Bartlett & West; Sam Gaines Construction, Inc.; Concrete Solutions, LLC; Aplex, Inc.; JD Bishop Construction, Inc.; Civil Design, Inc.
  • Lehman  Construction, Wilson & Company, and HG Consult Team – Lehman Construction, LLC; Wilson & Company, LLC; HG Consult, Inc.; Merge Midwest; VSM; McClure Engineering; SCM Construction; Central Missouri Professional Services

There are still opportunities for additional consultants and subcontracting firms to be added to each team. 

Design-build projects combine both the design and construction phases into one contract. The selected team completes the design and construction in parallel instead of in succession. MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule, and the contractor team conducts the work. This technique has been known to significantly save time and money.

MoDOT has established design-build goals for the project.  The contractor team will be selected using an Apparent Best Value process to determine the team who can best meet or beat the goals. To view the full list of goals and project timeline visit www.modot.org/MidMOADA.

MoDOT will issue the Request for Proposal in the coming weeks. Proposals will be due in January 2022 and the design-build team is expected to be selected in March 2022. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024.
