The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is hosting a Pre-SOQ Submission Information Meeting as part of its Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for design-build services for one of the largest projects in Washington, DC's history -- South Capitol Street Corridor Segments 1 and 2.
Estimated to cost more than $600 million combined, 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 p.m. 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).
The meeting will begin with registration at 9:00 a.m. followed by a formal presentation at 10:00 a.m. On-site parking is available at Matthews Memorial Baptist Church, but the church is also accessible from the Metro Green Line Anacostia Station.
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 http://ddot.dc.gov/procurement. All technical questions or requests for clarification regarding the RFQ must be submitted to the attention of SCS Technical Questions at: DDOT-SCSTQ@DC.GOV.
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 (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.
