WASHINGTON, DC - The District of Department of Transportation (DDOT) issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for design-build construction for one of the largest projects in the city’s history - South Capitol Street Corridor Segments 1 and 2.

Estimated to cost a total of more than $600 million, the project segments are as follows:

  • Segment 1: Replace the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge and construct traffic ovals on either end
  • Segment 2: Reconstruct the Suitland Parkway/Interstate-295 Interchange.

Project procurement will be a two-step process. In Step One, contracting teams will submit a Statement of Qualifications (SOQs) as outlined in the RFQ by 2 pm Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, July 18, 2013. In Step Two, DDOT will short-list up to four teams to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP).

DDOT will host a Pre-SOQ Submission Information Meeting on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at Matthews Memorial Baptist Church, 2616 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE with registration starting at 9 am and a formal presentation at 10 am. On-site parking is available, but the church is also accessible from the Metro Green Line Anacostia Station. Interested parties may pre-register for this meeting at South Capitol Street Pre-SOQ Meeting until 5 pm on Friday, June 21.

While attendance at this meeting is not a prerequisite for participating in the procurement process, contractors are encouraged to attend.

To view the RFQ, please visit DDOT Procurement. All technical questions or requests for clarification regarding the RFQ must be submitted to the attention of SCS Technical Questions at: DDOT-SCSTQ.

Together Segments 1 and 2 will constitute the first of two planned phases of the overall South Capitol Street Corridor Project. The project is one in a series of transportation, environmental, economic, community and recreation projects included in the larger Anacostia Waterfront Initiative Program. From the Tidal Basin to the city’s northeast border with Maryland, the 30-year, $10 billion AWI Program is transforming the shores of the Anacostia River into a world-class waterfront.
