At least three teams are forming to compete for Virginia DOT’s I-66 managed lanes P3 in northern Virginia, an estimated $3-billion toll concession project. VDOT says it intends to seek qualifications for a DBFOM project late this year, shortlist in mid-2015 and then request proposals late in 2015.
I-66 was declared a project of statewide significance a few months ago. Significantly, however, Tier 2 environmental studies only began recently and NEPA approvals aren’t expected until late 2015, at the earliest. The project runs east-west through Fairfax and Prince William Counties south of Dulles airport.
