HARRISBURG, Pa., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch today announced that four teams will be invited to submit proposals for the department's Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) initiative to replace at least 500 bridges across Pennsylvania.
Replacing the similarly designed bridges through one contract will bring cost savings since the same basic design and construction standards will be used for multiple bridges.
"This initiative reflects Governor Corbett's strong commitment to making the state's roads and bridges safer and improving mobility," Schoch said. "Because of the project's size, this will also be a great opportunity for Pennsylvania companies to work with the team we ultimately select."
The teams were scored and selected based on criteria such as their financial capability to carry out the project; their background and experience in managing comparable projects; and each team's understanding of the project.
The teams invited to submit proposals are:
- Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners: Plenary Group, The Walsh Group, Granite Construction Company, HDR Engineering, HNTB Corporation and Infrastructure Corporation of America;
- Keystone Bridge Partners: InfraRed Capital Partners, Kiewit, Parsons, The Allan A. Myers family of companies, DBi and American Infrastructure;
- Commonwealth Bridge Partners: John Laing Investments, Fluor, American Bridge Company, Traylor Bros. Inc., Joseph B. Fay Co., STV Incorporated and Infrastructure and Industrial Constructors;
- Pennsylvania Crossings: Meridiam, Lane Construction, AECOM, Trumbull, Wagman Companies and Cofiroute.
PennDOT expects to release final project details and requirements to the four teams this summer and select a preferred proposal this fall. Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2015.
The selected team will manage the bridges' design, construction and maintenance for a yet-to-be-determined number of years under one contract. The team will be responsible for financing the effort and PennDOT will make payments based on the contractor's adherence to the contract terms. PennDOT will continue to own all of the bridges and will be responsible for routine maintenance, such as snow plowing and debris removal.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project was approved by the state's P3 Board on Sept. 27, 2013.
