ADOT received five statements of qualifications for the project last December, and awaited release of the Project’s record of decision before making its shortlisting determination.  The Federal Highway Administration issued the record of decision last week.

This megaproject includes the design, construction and 30-year maintenance of the last section of the Loop 202 Freeway, which will stretch 22 miles from the Maricopa Freeway segment of Interstate I-10 to the Papago Freeway segment of the I-10 in the southwestern quadrant of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.

The project has been a critical part of the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Freeway Program since it was first included in funding through Proposition 300 approved by Maricopa County voters in 1985. The freeway is also part of the Regional Transportation Plan funding passed by Maricopa County voters in 2004 through Proposition 400.

The project will be the first highway project procured under Arizona’s public-private-partnership statute, and ADOT’s first design-build-maintain project ever.   ADOT will fund the project capital costs with a combination of available public funds from sales tax revenues and tax-exempt bonds.

ADOT plans to issue the final RFP late this spring, with the best-value selection and award of the design-build-maintain agreement anticipated for the end of this year.
