As per Sec. 227.107, RSMo, MoDOT was given the authority for three pilot projects using the design-build project delivery technique: The New I-64, kcICON and the Safe & Sound Bridge Improvement Program. Each was completed ahead of schedule and on, or under, budget.
Subsequently, the statute was amended to give MoDOT the opportunity to enter into design-build contracts on no more than two percent of the total number of all state highway system projects awarded to contracts for construction from projects listed in the commission’s approved statewide transportation improvement project for that state fiscal year.
Design-build is a delivery method that includes hiring one contracting team to complete the design work and build the highway improvement under one contract. MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule and the contractor team completes the work. This technique has been known to significantly save time and provide cost savings.
U.S. Route 54 “Champ Clark Bridge” over the Mississippi River – Pike County
