to Build and Operate the Purple Line.
On July 29, 2014 The Maryland Department of Transportation / Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT/MTA) announced the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Purple Line. MDOT/MTA is seeking to select a private-sector team to design, build, construct, finance, operate and maintain the Purple Line during a 35-year contract term. Four teams, short-listed by MDOT/MTA in January, are eligible to submit proposals due on January 9, 2015.
From the MDOT/MTA Press Release:
"This is a significant milestone towards construction of the Purple Line, which will help us grow our economy, create jobs for Maryland's workers, and strengthen communities in Prince George's and Montgomery counties," said Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown. "Building the Purple Line as a public-private partnership will allow us to continue our commitment to fiscally responsible budgeting while using the knowledge and skills of the private sector to expand our transportation infrastructure."
Following RFP proposal submissions on January 9, 2015, MDOT/MTA will select a preferred partner in Spring 2015 and recommend the final agreement to the Board of Public Works for its review and approval. Construction would start later that year. The primary RFP documents can be found at www.purplelinemd.com under Public-Private Partnerships.
