120th Avenue Connection Final Phase
In September 2010, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the City and County of Broomfield completed the first two phases of the 120th Avenue Connection project. The initial phases of the project constructed a new six-lane portion of State Highway 128 and a bridge over US 36 that connects with Wadsworth Boulevard. Click here for a map of construction phasing. Prior to this project, motorists in the Broomfield area could only cross US 36 at Wadsworth Parkway. Now that the SH 128 bridge over US 36 is complete, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists can access 120th Avenue by taking the new portion of SH 128. Click here for a map that shows how to access the new bridge from the local street network.
The final phase of the project will complete the construction of the new roadway that will connect SH 128 and 120th Avenue. It will also construct a grade separation at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. A bird's eye view of what the project will look like when it is completed is pictured here.
Mandatory Pre-Bid and Small Business Networking Session
CDOT will be hosting a pre-bid conference and small business networking session on August 26, 2014 for Design-Bid-Build of Phase II. CDOT invites all interested subcontractors, DBE, and ESB firms to attend and learn about the project scope, schedule, and opportunities for participation.
There is an 11 percent DBE goal and 1920 hours of On-the-Job Training (OJT) on the contract. This session is an opportunity for prime contractors to meet with small businesses and begin to build relationships that may lead to participation in the construction of this project.
The pre-bid and networking is mandatory for prime contractors intending to bid and voluntary for small businesses that are interested in potential subcontracting opportunities. There is no fee to attend.
Project advertised on August 7, 2014. Construction is planned to begin in spring 2015.
The project construction budget for the final phase is $26 million. 80% of the funding is federal with a 20% match from the City and County of Broomfield.
