12-Nov-2015 to 23-Nov-2015

As many of you have heard, CDOT is currently developing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to deliver a series of improvements to the I-70 East corridor between Brighton Boulevard and Chambers Road using a Design-Build-Finance-Operate- Maintain (DBFOM) procurement model. CDOT is establishing two Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) project goals for the design-build portion of the I-70 East Project. A third, separate DBE goal will be established for the Operate, Maintain and Repair contract. This goal will be reevaluated on three year intervals. 

CDOT has proposed a design/professional services DBE goal of 11.6% and a construction goal of 12.5%. CDOT encourages you to read the methodology document that outlines how these goals w ere determined. Public comments are being accepted through November 24, 2015. Please send your comments with specific data points via email to Katherine.Williams@state.co.us. For more information about the project, please visit www.codot.gov/projects/i70east.
