    with traffic)
  • High speed
  • Operational efficiency
  • Increased safety
  • Additional light rail vehicles

Corridor Development
  • Summer 1995 Major Investment Study (MIS) began
    by the Colorado Department of Transportation
    (CDOT)
  • Fall 1997 Denver Regional Council of
    Governments (DRCOG) adopted MIS recommendations

CDOT and RTD Inter-Governmental Agreement
  • CDOT and RTD executed on September 9, 1999
  • Establish the foundation for the new relationship
  • Work cooperatively together to finance/construct
    the Southeast Corridor Multi-Modal Project
  • Implement the Project using a single Design-Build
    Contract for the highway and light rail transit
    improvements
  • Agreement on the exclusions from the Design-Build
    Contract
  • Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) is unique
    nationally for a state DOT and transit agency

Transportation Expansion Project
Project Goals
  • To minimize inconvenience to the public
  • To meet or beat the total program budget of 1.67
    billion
  • To provide for a quality project
  • To meet or beat the schedule to be fully
    operational by June 30, 2008
  • Southeast Corridor Constructors (SECC)
    committed to complete by Fall 2006 (22 months
    ahead of schedule)

Transportation Expansion Project
Design-Build Concept
  • What is it?
  • Designing and constructing a project
    simultaneously
  • Why are we doing it this way?
  • The combination of design work and construction
    into one Contract results in cost efficiency and
    more innovative and fast-tracked solutions
  • The T-REX Team provided 30 complete design
    plans, the Design-Build Contractor completes the
    design while constructing the project
  • Allows for flexibility, creativity, and
    innovation by the Design-Build Contractor

    facilitate speedy resolution to issues
  • Utilize Compliance Auditing techniques to ensure
    the Design/Build Contractor is meeting Contract
    commitment obligations.
