Extension Announced for Route 29 Bypass Proposals

Proposals due on May 9, opening scheduled on May 11

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced that the deadline for submission of the price proposals for the Route 29/Charlottesville Bypass has been extended until May 9. The price proposals from the responsive design-build teams will be opened at 9 a.m. on May 11 in Richmond.

Seven design-build teams have provided technical proposals in response to VDOT’s Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Route 29 Charlottesville Bypass project. VDOT is seeking proposals to build the new road using its Design-Build project development process.
If VDOT determines that a technical proposal does not comply with the requirements of the RFP that proposal may be found to be non-responsive. In that case the design-build team will be notified in writing and the team’s price proposal will be returned unopened, along with the non-responsive technical proposal. 

The bid opening can be viewed on the following web site:  Bid results will also be posted on the web at:

Design-build teams that provided technical proposals for the project are:
American Infrastructure / Kimley-Horn; Glen Allen, Va.
CH2MHILL; Richmond, Va.
Charlottesville Bypass Constructors (Shirley-English) / Dewberry; Lorton, Va.
Granite-Wagman / Gannett Fleming; Tarrytown, N.Y.
Lane / RK&K; Chantilly, Va.
Skanska-Branch / JMT; Virginia Beach, Va.
Zachry / TranSystems; San Antonio, Texas

After the price proposals are opened VDOT will review each package 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 awarded by the Commonwealth Transportation Board.

The Route 29 Charlottesville Bypass project will build a new 6.2-mile, four-lane, limited-access roadway stretching from Route 29 just north of the South Fork Rivanna River to the Route 29/250 Bypass in Albemarle County. The project includes interchanges at both termini to move traffic between Route 29 north and Route 29/250 west of Charlottesville.
