Colorado seeks express lanes consultants

The Colorado High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE) is seeking consultants to develop a statewide Express Lanes Master Plan (ELMP).

It said that the success of express lanes and the use of toll revenue backed project financing means there is a need to create a statewide strategic ELMP to proactively prepare for future needs.

The ELMP will be a comprehensive, long-term system-wide strategic road map for the prioritization, planning, and development of express lanes-related projects to efficiently deliver the overall statewide program.

HPTE anticipates that the consultant will have strong knowledge of transportation traffic and revenue analysis, transportation finance matters and different P3 arrangements.

The deadline is December 18, 2017.
