The Port of Long Beach and Caltrans have selected a team led by Shimmick Construction Company, Inc., FCC Construction S.A., and Impregilo S.p.A. as the apparent best value proposer for the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project design-build contract. The Shimmick team had both the highest technical score and, at $649.5 million, the lowest proposal price to replace the existing span linking Interstate 710 to the Port of Long Beach.
The Port and Caltrans are jointly procuring the design-build portion of this project through California’s Design-Build Demonstration Program. In addition to the Port and Caltrans, funding partners for the project include the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and United States Department of Transportation. The Port expects construction activities to start in early 2013.
