I-65 Southeast Indiana Project

I-65 Southeast Indiana Project

Based on the responses to a request for qualifications issued by the Indiana Department of Transportation ("INDOT") on July 29, 2016, the INDOT identified three teams (E & B Paving, Inc., Milestone Contractors, L.P., Rieth-Riley Construction Company, Inc.) for the I-65 Southeast Indiana Project (the "Project").  These short listed teams are being asked by INDOT to submit responses to a request for proposals ("RFP") issued on December 28, 2016 to design, construct and re-construct portions of Interstate I-65 at defined locations located in Bartholomew and Jackson Counties as set forth in the RFP.  The Project is a non-tolled highway project.  INDOT will evaluate the proposals from the short listed teams based on the criteria described in the RFP.

The Project involves pavement rehabilitation for both the northbound and southbound I-65 mainline lanes and shoulders and extending the service life of bridges and small structures. Portions of the median shoulder will include widening to accommodate a future lane. The project begins north of Exit 50 (US 50) to north of Exit 64 (SR 58) approximately 14.25 miles.
