Parks Highway MP 237 Riley Creek Bridge Replacement
Federal Project No. IM-BR-0A4-4(19), State of Alaska Project No. 63763
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing to replace the Riley Creek Bridge near milepost (MP) 237 of the Parks Highway. To develop the design with the most innovation and plan the construction to find efficiencies and cost savings, the Department applied for and received permission from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to use an alternative procurement method called Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMCG).
The FHWA defines CMGC as follows:
CMGC occupies the middle ground between the traditional Design Bid Build (DBB) and Design Build (DB). In a typical CMGC scenario, the owners of a project contract with a general contractor to serve as the construction manager, to provide the owner with constructability, pricing, and scheduling information during the design process. As the design nears completion, if the owner and the construction manager are able to agree on a price for construction, they sign a construction contract and the construction manager then becomes the general contractor. CMGC allows State DOTs to remain active in the design process while assigning risks to the parties most able to mitigate them. Also called Construction Manager at-Risk.
The CMGC process uses the skills and expertise of the project team (designer, owner, contractor) to:
- Identify and mitigate risks
- Complete formal design reviews
- Provide input on constructability
- Develop a cost model to identify project costs, contingencies and budgets.
