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).

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.
