 Project Informational Oversight

This site provides procurement information concerning the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project (ODOT PID 116649).

The Brent Spence Corridor is a major thoroughfare for both local and national traffic; connecting two states that are critical to the movement of people, goods, and services. It is part of a nationally-recognized corridor for freight and interstate travel that covers eight miles spanning the Ohio Western Hills Viaduct  to just south of Dixie Highway in Kentucky. 

The Project (PID 116649) will reconstruct approximately 5 miles of I-71/I-75 in Kentucky and 1 mile of I-75 in Ohio and will include construction of a new companion bridge over the Ohio River just to the west of the existing Brent Spence Bridge.  As such, ODOT and KYTC established a Bi-State Management Team (BSMT) with the authority to oversee the Project. ODOT will be the lead contracting agency but will team with KYTC in respect to the BSMT's efforts. The project design and construction is estimated at $2.2Billion.

​The contracting procurement will follow a two-step “Best-Value" selection process. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is tentatively scheduled for late October 2022. Responses to the RFQ will be evaluated to establish a shortlist of up to three most qualified Design Build teams. Shortlisted Offerors will be invited to submit Proposals mid January 2023. The “Best‐Value" selection process will evaluate the ability of the Shortlisted Offeror to manage the Project and provide a quality product on or ahead of schedule.  The anticipated announcement of the best value proposal will be late Oct 2023.  ​
