PULASKI COUNTY (1-9) – The Arkansas State Highway Commission has approved selection of a 30 Crossing project design-builder, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

The Arkansas State Highway Commission approved selection of Kiewit-Massman Constructors to provide design and construction of the 30 Crossing project upon the successful conclusion of an optimization and refinement period.

Kiewit-Massman Constructors was one of six design-build teams to respond to the 30 Crossing Request for Qualifications in June 2017. After respondents were short-listed, the Request for Proposals was released in September 2018. Two short-listed teams provided proposals in December 2018. After evaluating the proposals, which included design, construction methods, third-party coordination, and an optimization and refinement plan, ARDOT will move forward with entering into a design-build agreement with Kiewit-Massman Constructors. The team includes lead designer Burns & McDonnell Engineering and lead quality assurance firm Volkert.

The optimization and refinement period is a six-month period in which ARDOT and Kiewit-Massman Constructors will work together to define the 30 Crossing project scope that can be completed within the available funding.
