Interstate 70 West - Request for Indications of Interest - Direct Loan/Line-of-Credit Provider

The Colorado High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE), a division of the Colorado Department of Transportation, requests proposals from qualified financial institutions to finance a portion of the construction costs associated with the I-70 Peak Period Shoulder Lane Project (“I-70 PPSL”) being undertaken by the Colorado Department of Transportation. This procurement will be conducted as a solicitation under HPTE’s Project Procurement Guidelines and will be a two-phase process with this request serving as the initial solicitation document to identify qualified, interested lenders. The second phase will be a negotiated selection of the bidder whose proposal is determined to be the most advantageous to the State of Colorado and HPTE, based on the lending terms and on pricing. A successful selection in phase one will not guarantee any lender a role in the financing. The solicitation document can be found here.  Answers to potential proposer questions can be found here.

*Proposals are due September 10, 2014 and a selection will be made in October 2014.

I-70 East Corridor Project Value for Money Report

This value for money analysis compares the total costs of delivering the I-70 East Corridor Project using different forms of procurement. The objectives are to identify the procurement approach which:

  • Best fits within the CDOT and Colorado Bridge Enterprises' affordability envelope for the project, and
  • Results in the lowest net present value of payments by CDOT and Bridge Enterprise over the lifecycle of the project and maximizes availability of Bridge Enterprise revenues to fund additional bridge replacement and rehavilitation projects.
