Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Industry Forum on August 16th

MOBILE, AL. —
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) will be holding an Industry Forum for the I-10 Mobile River Bridge Project and the I-10 Bayway Project. The Projects are located in Baldwin and Mobile Counties in southwest Alabama. The event is scheduled to take place at 8:30 AM on August 16th, 2022 at the GulfQuest Maritime Museum (155 South Water Street, Mobile, AL 36602). Activities will include project overviews and presentation, as well as One-on-One meetings with potential lead firms and development teams following the forum. Pre- Registration is required.
The Projects aim to increase the capacity of I-10 by constructing a new six-lane bridge across the Mobile River, replacing the existing I-10 bridges across Mobile Bay, and modifying seven interchanges. The estimated cost of the I-10 Mobile River Bridge project is approximately $1.5 billion and the estimated cost of the I-10 Bayway project is approximately $1 billion.
During the forum, ALDOT and its advisors will provide an overview of the projects, describe the progressive Design-Build delivery approach, and communicate the projects’ procurement development timelines. There are a limited number of available time slots for the One-on-One meetings. Pre-registration for these meetings is required.
While the forum is geared toward informing the industry about the project, it will also serve as a platform for interactions between larger entities and interested regional, local, and DBE firms and contractors.
Information gathered via the Industry Forum and One-on-One Meetings will assist ALDOT in refining the approach for project development. Information from attendees may also be used to assist ALDOT with the preparation of procurement documents for the proposed Projects.
