I-66 Corridor Improvements

In December 2017, the Virginia Department of Transportation entered into a Comprehensive Agreement with a private partner, Express Mobility Partners, to deliver over $2 Billion worth of improvements to 22.5 miles in the I-66 Corridor from University Boulevard in Gainesville, to I-495 in Fairfax. The project is managed out of the Northern Virginia District Megaprojects Office, led by Susan Shaw. To support VDOT in delivering this project, a General Engineering Consultant multi-disciplined team was hired in 2015/2016 to augment and work side-by-side a small VDOT team.

Leading up to the December 2017 Agreement, the VDOT/GEC team successfully completed preliminary and environmental studies, and helped to complete a "first of its kind" Public-Private-Partnership (P3) procurement process that included alternative technical concepts and multiple delivery methods. Following the December 2017 Agreement, early work activities have been underway to advance the design work. Now that Financial Close has been reached in November 2017, the VDOT/GEC team is focused on a variety of concurrent activities. Come and hear about how this team is working together to help ensure the largest infrastructure project in Virginia will be successfully delivered by December 2022.
