Public Engagement

CDOT held a virtual public meeting on May 25, 2022, with 142 representatives from the construction industry and the public to review the best contracting methods to rebuild eight aging bridge structures along I-270 between York Street and Vasquez Boulevard.

During the virtual meeting, CDOT recommended using the Construction Management/General Contractor (CM/GC) method to rebuild these bridges as safely and efficiently as possible with the least amount of impact to the traveling public.

The CM/GC method allows for a quicker delivery of certain complex projects by involving a construction manager to participate early in the design process. This results in a more efficient and complete development of the project scope, which is critical to the success of very complex projects such as multiple bridge replacements in a highly congested area. CDOT has a detailed process that guides transportation engineers and stakeholders to reach the best delivery method.
