WASHINGTON, DC – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold an Industry Day from 9 am to noon on Monday, January 14, 2013 at Matthews Memorial Baptist Church in advance of issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a design-build contract in the first quarter of 2013 for the first two segments of the South Capitol Street Corridor Project.
The design-build contract will complete Project Segment I, which consists of replacing the existing Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge and its approaches with a new bridge and approaches and Segment II, which consists of constructing a new Suitland Parkway/I-295 Interchange.
In addition to a design-build, the contract for Segment I and II may allow that the contractor provide gap financing based on the final scope of work to be included in a Request for Proposals (RFP). The new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge may be a new moveable bridge, or potentially, a fixed span replacement.
