CDOT is hosting a joint Pre-Bid Conference and Networking Session on July 9, 2013 for two significant highway construction projects. CDOT invites all interested prime contractors, DBE/ESB certified firms, and other small business subcontractors to attend and learn about the projects, scope of construction, planned schedules, and opportunities for participation. Both projects have DBE goals and this session will provide an opportunity for small businesses to meet with prime contractors and begin to build relationships that may lead to participation in the construction of these projects.

I-25 North Express Lanes Construction
This highway construction project will be advertised on June 27, 2013 with CDOT opening bids on July 25, 2013. The project is intended to expand the capacity of I-25 by adding one HOV/tolled Express Lanes in each direction between US 36 and 120th Avenue. In addition, the project will resurface the existing lanes along this six-mile stretch. There will be a 10.5 percent DBE goal on the contract. Click here to visit the project website.

I-70 Tower Road to Colfax Avenue Construction
This highway construction project will be advertised on June 27, 2013 with CDOT opening bids on August 1, 2013. This project is intended to reconstruct approximately 2.5 miles of I-70 using concrete pavement and replace two bridges over Union Pacific Railroad/Smith Road. Inside and outside shoulders on I-70 will be widened to accommodate the high percentage of truck traffic. The new bridges over UPRR/Smith Road will include a third travel lane in preparation for future improvements that will eventually increase I-70 from four to six lanes. There will be a 9 percent DBE goal on the contract.

The session is MANDATORY for prime contractors bidding on either one or both of these projects. It is voluntary for small businesses interested in potential subcontracting opportunities. Please RSVP below.
