VDOT must review each offeror’s submission for responsiveness to the Request for Proposals and legal requirements. If that review is satisfactory and a competitive price proposal is received, VDOT will issue a Notice of Intent to Award to the successful offeror. The contract will be reviewed by the Commonwealth Transportation Board at its June 20 meeting.

The final ranking will be posted on VDOT’s web site at:
