On December 12, the PPTA Steering Committee was briefed on the project’s Public Sector Analysis and Competition report and the Finding of Public Interest in accordance with the PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines. A video recording of the meeting is available at this link.

The Committee concurred with the report’s findings, which recommended that the HRBT project advance as a design-build procurement under the Public-Private Transportation Act.

VDOT anticipates issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) accordingly before the end of 2017, and these documents will be published at VDOT's Procurement site as they become available.
