COMMONWEALTH TAKES NEXT STEP ON I-66 OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY PROJECT
Draft Request for Qualifications posted for industry response

RICHMOND – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) posted today a Draft Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for interested private sector teams to share their resources, qualifications and experience to deliver the $2.1 billion I-66 Outside the Beltway project in Northern Virginia under the Public-Private Transportation Act.  

The Commonwealth Transportation Board will consider if the RFQ will be formally issued during their September 16th  meeting.

Issuing the draft RFQ will give the VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation the information required to determine if there would be enough benefit to move forward as a possible P3 project.  The state would then issue a Request for Proposals, which would go into more detail on what the private sector could offer.
