Washington, DC - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) released a draft Request for Proposal (RFP) concerning the design-build and construction of the South Capitol Street Corridor Segments 1 and 2. This draft RFP was issued to the four previously-identified successful short-listed Responding Teams who submitted their qualifications in response to a Request for Qualifications. The South Capitol Street Corridor Project is among the agency’s largest construction endeavors to date and includes the replacement of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge.
DDOT will receive and consider the Responding Team’s questions and comments on the draft RFP over the next 30 days before the agency issues a final RFP.
Plans call for the Responding Teams to submit their technical and financial proposals in the third quarter of 2014, after which DDOT will select the best value proposal based on a combination of technical and financial scores. DDOT anticipates awarding a contract and starting the project’s final design and construction phases in early 2015.
The Short-List teams are:
- Frederick Douglass Bridge Partners – Tutor Perini/T.Y. Lin/Stantec
- Skanska Facchina – Skanska/Facchina/Parsons Transportation
- South Capitol Constructors – Kiewit/Corman/URS
- South Capitol Bridge Builders – Archer Western/Granite/AECOM
Estimated to cost about $608 million, the South Capitol Street Corridor Project will include:
- Segment 1: Construction of a replacement Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge, new traffic ovals on either end of the bridge and demolition of the existing Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge, and
- Segment 2: The reconstruction of the Suitland Parkway / I-295 Interchange.
Segments 1 and 2 will constitute the first phase of two segments of the five segments that comprise the 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 (AWI) 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.
