The South Mountain Freeway is the largest project that ADOT has pursued under a single procurement.  It is one of the last major highway projects in the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Transportation Plan, and will be a 22-mile, eight lane freeway, including two HOV lanes, in the southwest quadrant of the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Using its public-private partnership statutory authority for the first time on a major highway project, ADOT aims to complete evaluations and establish a short list of qualified teams in early February and then proceed into the proposal stage of the procurement.  The short-listing decision will be made after the record of decision is issued for the project.  The winning proposer, to be selected on a best value basis, will enter into a contract to complete the design and construct the project, followed by maintenance services for up to 30 years.  ADOT will fund the project capital costs with a combination of available public funds from sales tax revenues and tax-exempt bonds.
