TrAnsporTATIon//sTATe of The secTor / TRANS REPORT cross-country Design-Build picks up steam A By evan caplicki merica’s infrastructure is in need of attention. Whether projects address decaying existing infrastructure or supply access to expanding areas, there is a strong demand for transportation investment. Public entities around the country continue to turn to design-build for all manner of these projects, from small rehabilitation projects to significant extensions of existing infrastructure to massive overhauls and replacement of decades-old infrastructure. Here are six recent examples from around the country: 1. The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (SCVTA) received four proposals from prequalified proposers for its Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension project, the 10-mile first phase of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system into San Jose, Calif. The SCVTA board will most likely award the design-build contract in December. 2. The Washington State Department of Transportation has a long-standing designbuild program and recently awarded two major design-build projects in the Seattle area: the $1.96 million SR-99 tunnel to replace the aging Alaska Way Viaduct and the $586.5 million SR-520 floating bridge replacement. 3. The California Department of Transportation is proceeding apace with its design-build program, having already awarded its first contract (Madera 99), with five other projects under active procurement: I-15/I-215 Interchange Improvements (Devore), Fresno 180, San Mateo 101, Los Angeles 10/605 and San Diego 805 North. 4. T he New York St ate Depa r t ment of Transportation (NYDOT) has started using design-build based on emergency authority. The NYDOT and New York State Thruway Authority have issued a statement that they plan to seek legislation to use design-build for a $5.2 billion replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge in Rockland County. 5. The Knik Arm Bridge and Toll Authority received statements of qualifications from six proposers and short-listed three of them as part of its Knik Arm Crossing Project. This $750 million project to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a tolled bridge and associated roadways adds a critical finance component to the project and will significantly shorten the travel time between Anchorage, Alaska, and the rapidly growing Mat-Su Borough. 6. Transportation agencies in a number of other states, including Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia, have implemented design-build programs as a means of accelerating critical projects. With these undertakings, we can see that design-build is being sought out as a solution to transportation infrastructure problems facing the country today. e VaN capLIckI IS aN at torNe Y WIth NoSSaMaN LLp. aS part of the fIrM’S INfraStrUctUre practIce GroUp, he focUSeS oN pUBLIc coNtract LaW aND coNStrUctIoN LItIGatIoN. he aDVISeS proJect oWNerS oN INNoVatIVe coNtractING MethoDS aND pUBLIc-prIVate partNerShIpS for L arGe pUBLIc INfraStrUctUre proJectS aroUND the coUNtrY. 14 winter//2011 the quarterly publication of the design-build institute of america photo courtesy of Shutterstock Overhauls to existing infrastructure mean more design-build projects across the country.
