Construction giants offer ideas to sort I-66 highway

12 Dec 13 In total, 19 private-sector businesses - including international giants Aecom, Bechtel, Fluor, Hochtief, Skanska and Vinci - have offered recommendations for ways to improve the congested Interstate 66 in Virginia, USA.

The submissions are in response to the request for information (RFI) issued in late June. The RFI sought innovative and creative solutions to ease the congested I-66 corridor from Capital Beltway to Route 15 in Haymarket.

"The RFI is part of the Commonwealth's plan to transform I-66 from a highly congested corridor to a multi-modal transportation facility that moves traffic and people more efficiently," said Virginia governor Bob McDonnell.

Transportation secretary Sean T. Connaughton added, "The Commonwealth has asked for the best and brightest ideas from both the public and private sectors and that resulting synergy will provide the most effective solutions to ease congestion and improve travel on I-66."

The RFI sought private sector input on a range of best practices and innovative approaches to develop and finance transportation improvements on a 40km section of I-66. Improvements under consideration could add additional capacity to the road, provide multi-modal options and possibly finance the project through tolled express lanes.
