PRIVATE TEAMS PRESENT PLANS FOR NEW ROUTE 460 TO INDEPENDENT REVIEW PANEL
Public meeting to be held Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011, at Windsor High School
RICHMOND - The second of three public meetings of the U.S. Route 460 Corridor Improvements Project’s Independent Review Panel (IRP) will be held on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011.
The 11-member panel, appointed in November by Secretary of Transportation Sean T. Connaughton and chaired by the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) Chief Deputy Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick, P.E., will evaluate three private-sector proposals submitted to build a new Route 460 between Petersburg and Suffolk.
The meeting will start at 5 p.m. at Windsor High School at 24 Church St. in Windsor. The meeting is open to the public.
The teams, 460 Partners, Inc., Multimodal Solutions LLC and Cintra Infraestructuras S.A.U, will make presentations about their proposals.
Each offeror team will provide a video presentation to the IRP regarding the project and its conceptual proposal. After each presentation, the IRP will conduct a question and answer session with the team.
Additionally, citizens will be provided an opportunity to review project information and may present comments about the proposals for the IRP members’ consideration.
The public comment period will begin at 7 p.m.
The three proposals will be evaluated based on the criteria outlined in VDOT’s solicitation for proposals.
The IRP will develop recommendations for submission to VDOT’s commissioner and the Commonwealth Transportation Board during its third and final meeting to be held 12 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, at the Prince George County Board of Supervisors’ meeting room in the County Administration Building at 6602 Court Drive in Prince George.
While no public comments will be accepted at the final IRP meeting, the public may still submit written comments through Monday, Jan. 10, to VDOT’s Innovative Project Delivery Division at 1401 E. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23219, by e-mail at Route460PPTA@vdot.virginia.gov or through the project website at www.route460ppta.org.
