Three Teams Submit Proposals to Replace the Gerald Desmond Bridge
Posted in Bridges

The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project reached a major milestone today when it received three proposals to replace the existing span linking Interstate 710 to the Port of Long Beach.  The Port of Long Beach and Caltrans are jointly procuring the design-build portion of the project - estimated to cost roughly $750 million - through California’s Design-Build Demonstration Program.

The three teams that submitted proposals are:

  • Dragados USA Inc./Flatiron West Inc/CC Myers Inc., A Joint Venture;
  • Shimmick Construction Company Inc./FCC Construction S.A./Impregilo S.p.A, A Joint Venture; and
  • Skanska/Traylor/Massman, A Joint Venture.

The Port and Caltrans released a Request for Proposals on Sept. 2, 2011, to the teams that were prequalified for the project. The Port expects to enter into the design-build contract by mid-summer 2012.

For more information regarding the project and the teams that submitted proposals, see this joint press release from the Port of Long Beach and Caltrans.
