Industry Forum: I-75 Modernization Project
Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM)
September 20, 2017 at 9:00am


The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is hosting a follow-up Industry Forum to discuss the upcoming DBFM procurement that will modernize approximately 5.5 miles of I-75. This Forum will provide an opportunity for potential bidders of all sizes and types to learn about the project scope, procurement process and schedule, and begin the process of industry consultation regarding the maintenance elements included in the scope.


The intent of this Forum is to share base information of the Project for all interested participants and also meant to be a platform for interactions between developers, contractors, as well as DBE firms for partnering opportunities. A networking session will follow the Forum where MDOT will be available for introductions and questions.


I-75 improvements will include reconstructing the existing freeway lanes, adding an HOV/general purpose lane, replacing structures, constructing a new drainage tunnel, upgrading ITS systems, and incorporating community developed aesthetic improvements. It is anticipated that MDOT will use availability payments for the Project. MDOT expects to release a Request for Qualifications in early Fall 2017 and anticipates that financial close will be achieved during Fall 2018.

When: September 20, 2017 from 9:00am to 12:00 p.m. (coffee and light fare will be provided)

Where: Auburn Hills Marriott, 3600 Centerpoint Parkway, Pontiac, MI 48341

This DBFM project is located north of 13 Mile Road to north of 8 Mile Road in the Cities of Madison Heights, Royal Oak, Hazel Park.
It is envisioned that routine maintenance during construction and long term maintenance responsibilities are expected to be included in the DBFM contract.
Winter maintenance will be the responsibility of MDOT or its subcontractors.
MDOT intends to use federal funds for the Project. The project is environmentally cleared with a ROD, and a re-evaluation is on-going and expected to be completed this year.
