$96.3M IndyGo Project Includes Civil, Infrastructure Work

IndyGo representatives presented the Red Line Rapid Transit construction project to potential bidders at the Indianapolis Central Library on Tuesday, June 27. IndyGo plans to let two contracts in September of 2017 for work to build Phase I of the Red Line Rapid Transit (BRT). The Phase I project will run from Broad Ripple south to the University of Indianapolis.

Two bid packages are planned for release in late July or early August. Bid package A will include civil and utility work including paving, sidewalk, curb, curb ramps, storm water, power, traffic signals and structure foundations. Package B will include bus station structures and amenities. The total project cost including engineering, utilities, construction, and capital costs is $96.3 million. Per IndyGo’s FAQ webpage, estimated costs include $57 million for infrastructure upgrades, $14.5 million in vehicle costs, and $25 million in contingency to cover unforeseen expenses or cost inflation. HNTB, project construction manager, Kevin Campbell stated that “utility conflict coordination work has begun but utility construction may not be complete prior to commencement of contract work.”

IndyGo plans to award the projects in the October 2017 IndyGo Board meeting and issue a notice to proceed no later than December 2017. The project completion date is in December 2018. For more information and updates, visit https://www.indygo.net/redline/.

INDOT is testing implementation of a new pavement treatment approach for PCCP Pavement Rehab, Precast Concrete Pavement (PCP). Several experimental projects are, or will be coordinated, as each set of projects will involve testing a different PCP system. US 40 in Richmond is the first of these test projects. A Precast Concrete Pavement Forum was hosted by the Joint Transportation Research Project (JTRP) on August 11 addressing the general use of PCP.

Now we are detailing and preparing to bid, award and accomplish this first test project. Thank you for your interest in the project and helping INDOT in improving and increasing the effectiveness of our pavement operations.
