Name Express Lanes Network Highway Maintenance Services Project

The purpose of this upcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit responses from qualified contractors to provide comprehensive management and maintenance services, including some construction services, of express lanes highway infrastructure on the Bay Area Express Lane Network (ELN).  The majority of the work in the initial contract period will focus on the civil and backhaul field elements on the I-680S express lane segment, including field elements of backhaul on I-680 from Alcosta Boulevard to the Benicia Bridge Toll Plaza.  Additional services to improve the BAIFA express lane segments or any other express lane segments in the Bay Area ELN may be also be included through BAIFA requested Task Orders.  The contract will also allow the selected contractor to perform highway maintenance activities on behalf of BAIFA for other express lane segments that may be implemented within the initial term (through an amendment) or approved contract extension, and including both future segments not authorized today and other Bay Area ELN segments implemented by other express lane operators, should BAIFA reach agreement with those operators.  

Contractors considered for this project shall have the ability to perform electrical, civil and general maintenance using their own staff or through subcontractors.  In general, these skills shall be used to perform surveys, inspection, maintenance and repair of equipment and facilities on the ELN as directed by BAIFA to perform and meet the following objectives:

  • Assist with the maintenance of the express lanes on a day-to-day and as-needed basis;
