Project NEON Design Build to Host Industry Day for Interested Proposers
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is proud to announce that the seven-member State Transportation Board unanimously approved advancing Project NEON as a Design-Build (DB) procurement. The primary features of Project NEON’s initial improvement will include building a one-mile high occupancy vehicle (HOV) bridge connecting I 15 to US 95, creating a new HOV interchange, reconstructing the Charleston/I 15 interchange and ramp braiding for the southbound movements.
The procurement of the Project NEON Design-Build will commence with the issuance of a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to identify teams that have the experience, capabilities and resources to design and build the project. Groups comprised of contractors and engineers are expected to respond to the RFQ. The RFQ is scheduled to be issued on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, and posted on the Departments Vendor Page at:http://www.nevadadot.com/Documents/Doing_Business/RFP/RFQ/RFI_Opportunities.aspx. The scheduled date for submission of the statements of qualifications is November 20, 2014.
An industry day for the public and interested team members is scheduled for Wednesday, October 1, 2014 in Las Vegas. An open forum with a presentation by NDOT will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon on October 1, 2014 at the Golden Nugget Hotel-Casino, 129 E. Fremont St., Bel Air Conference Room. NDOT representatives will provide information about the project and the procurement process, and will be available to answer questions from individuals and firms interested in the project.
NDOT representatives will meet with Design Builders that are capable of leading proposer teams for Project NEON. Meetings will be held by appointment on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 from 1 to 4 p.m. and on Thursday, October 2, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact Mark Stewart at email@example.com by September 24, 2014, if you are interested in scheduling a meeting.

About Project Neon
Project NEON is one of the most important and most ambitious undertakings in NDOT history. The multi-phase, multi-year project will boost safety, mobility, and accessibility in the most heavily trafficked corridor in the state of Nevada. Nearly 250,000 vehicles a day use the 3.7-mile stretch from the US 95/I-15 interchange in downtown Las Vegas to Sahara Avenue. Project NEON is essential to the progression of Las Vegas transportation, economic development and quality of life. As a 20-plus year program of improvements, Project NEON is also expected to create hundreds of planning and engineering jobs and thousands of construction jobs over its lifetime, thus improving the local economy.
