With the design-build contract officially signed, the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project team commenced the project’s Proof of Concept Phase on October 2. The Innovation Period is part of the project’s Proof of Concept phase, which will conclude in the spring of 2024.
“The Innovation Period is critical for efficiency’s sake,” said Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Project Manager Tommy Arnold. “We continue to evaluate ways to save money and time, and to meet the contract objectives, such as achieving effective project delivery, minimizing traffic disruption during construction, and maximizing the public investment in the project. It’s a period of refinement of the base plan.”
While the 60-day innovation period will end in December, the resulting ideas will still need further evaluation for constructability and cost. Final decisions are expected by mid-2024.
