VDOT RECEIVES AN UNSOLICITED PUBLIC-PRIVATE PROPOSAL FOR HAMPTON ROADS BRIDGE-TUNNEL

RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) received one conceptual unsolicited proposal under the Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) from a private firm to develop and operate the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel and I-64 from I-664 to I-564 in Hampton, Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

The unsolicited proposal was submitted by Hampton Roads Crossings, which is a group of international construction companies and infrastructure developers that include:

  • Skanska Infrastructure Development
  • Kiewit Infrastructure Co.
  • Skanska USA Civil
  • Weeks Marine
  • Parson Brinckeroff   

In the 2010 General Assembly session, HB 402 required that unsolicited PPTA proposals to add capacity to the Hampton Road Bridge–Tunnel be accepted for review by the VDOT.

As required by HB 402 and the PPTA, VDOT will begin its quality control review of the submitted proposal to determine if the proposal meets the requirements of the PPTA and the commonwealth implementation guidelines.  

Once the review is completed, VDOT will present its findings and recommendations to VDOT’s Commissioner Greg Whirley for his consideration.

 If VDOT accepts the proposal, it will be posted for public review and a 120-day competition period.

For more information on the PPTA process and guidelines, and to read the proposals once they are posted, visit http://www.virginiadot.org/business/ppta-default.asp

Proposals accepted by VDOT will be posted on this site within 10 working days of their acceptance.
