Statewide Special Structures

Request for Information (RFI):

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is considering options to rehabilitate and/or replace, operate and maintain 17 Statewide Special Structures as identified in the 2018 VITAL Infrastructure Report to the General Assembly.  VDOT is currently exploring the options to procure and deliver the Statewide Special Structures under the Public Private Partnership Transportation Act of 1995 (PPTA).  VDOT is also considering opportunities to bundle any of the Special Structures with other transportation facilities in the Commonwealth into a single project to rehabilitate and/or replace, operate and maintain, leveraging a single delivery model and multiple funding options.
