Airports Authority Intends to Award Phase 2 Construction Contract to Capital Rail Constructors

Yesterday, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority issued a Notice of Recommended Award to Capital Rail Constructors for the major design-build portion of Phase 2 of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, known as the Silver Line.
The announcement of the Notice of Recommended Award formally identifies the team consisting of Clark Construction Group and Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. as the low-price proposer for the contract, but does not constitute a final award of the contract.
The announcement follows an Airports Authority review of Capital Rail Constructors' $1,177,777,000.00 price proposal, which was determined to meet all necessary requirements. Capital Rail Constructors' price proposal was the lowest of the five read by the Airports Authority at a public opening on Friday, April 19.
The Notice of Recommended Award is the next step in a competitive procurement process that began in July 2012. The Airports Authority will now request additional documentation from the team, including insurance certificates, and payment and performance bonds. A final award of the contract is expected in May.
This contract includes the construction of 6 stations, 11.4 miles of track and guideways, and wayside components. The stations are Reston Town Center, Herndon, Innovation Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Route 606 and Route 772/Ashburn. Additional contracts will be competed in the near future for the rail yard and parking garages.
The Silver Line project is being undertaken in partnership with Loudoun and Fairfax counties and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
