GOV. MCDONNELL ANNOUNCES MORE THAN 30 FIRMS ANSWER CALL TO ENHANCE TRANSPORTATION OPERATIONS CENTERS

From the office of Gov. Bob McDonnell

RICHMOND – Gov. Bob McDonnell today announced that 32 firms submitted responses to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) Request for Information regarding the operation and integration of the state's transportation operations centers. VDOT operates five centers across the commonwealth that monitor traffic conditions via cameras and other technology, providing traveler information on road conditions and coordinating congestion management and incident response.

“I am extremely pleased with the level of private sector interest in this project,” said Gov. McDonnell. “We need to be creative in our delivery of services, and I believe the private sector can help us do just that. I look forward to providing a system that uses the latest technology to address the needs of motorists.”

In coordination with the Office of Transportation Public-Private Partnerships, VDOT released a Request for Information on Jan. 18, 2012, seeking interest and suggestions from the private sector on how the centers can better operate as one system and deliver improved services to motorists. The following firms submitted or were included as members of firms submitting a response to the RFI:

1.         AECOM

Based on the information gathered from this RFI, VDOT will develop a procurement strategy and initiate a formal procurement for services. The overall intent of this project is to contract with a firm, or team of firms, to operate the centers, including investment and revenue generation opportunities. The key improvement would be transforming the centers to operate under a single advanced active traffic management system platform. 

The transportation operations centers are located in Northern Virginia, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Salem and Staunton.
