Friday, January 31, 2014

Washington DC - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has notified a Short-List of four contractor teams of their advancement to the second phase of the procurement with an opportunity to respond to a detailed Request for Proposal (RFP) for design-build construction of the South Capitol Street Corridor Segments 1 and 2. The project is among the largest in DDOT’s history and includes the replacement of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge.

The Short-List teams are as follows:

  • 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

DDOT selected these highly-qualified Short-List Teams from a pool of seven that took part in the first phase of procurement by responding to the agency’s Request for Qualifications (RFQ).

The project is estimated to cost a total of more than $608 million, the project segments include:

  • Segment 1: The demolition and replacement of the existing Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge with construction of traffic ovals on either end; and
  •  Segment 2:  The reconstruction of the Suitland Parkway/Interstate-295 Interchange.

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 (AWI). 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.
