Come meet with the Prime Contractor teams who are pursuing the major design-build project to connect US Highway 550 connection to US Highway 160, south of Durango. CDOT will be short-listing the top three (3) teams on June 10th to receive the final Request for Proposals (RFP).  At this event on June 26th, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and engage with the teams about potential subcontracting opportunities. Prime contractor proposals are due this fall so now is the time to secure your place on the teams.
