Capital Beltway HOT Lanes –

Our Challenges & Successes

Herb Morgan

Vice President

Fluor Infrastructure

slide2

Welcome to Northern Virginia

  • 2nd most congested region in US
  • Population growing at twice national rate
  • Polls show transportation #1 issue
  • Beltway congested 6-8 hours per day
  • Costs local economy $5.5 billion a year
public private partnership
Public-Private Partnership

Nearly $2 billion transportation improvement project

80-year partnership agreement

Approximately $1.5 billion in private equity and debt

Key risks transferred to private sector, away from taxpayers

Schedule (fixed date with LD’s of $250K per day)

Cost (Lump Sum)

State grant and use of innovative federal loan programs

Partnership agreement includes key

provisions to protect public interest

Revenue sharing

No non-compete

slide4

Stimulating the Local Economy*

  • Construction of $2 Billion Capital Beltway HOT Lanes is expected to:
    • Support 11,200 jobs
    • Generate $2.7 billion in economic benefit for region 2008-2013
    • Contribute 10% of job growth and 20% of total economic growth in Fairfax County
    • Commitments with 103 Disadvantage Business Enterprise (DBE) firms and 118 Small Woman and Minority (SWaM) firms; totaling $368M

Overview of Improvements

  • Two new lanes (High Occupancy Toll) in each direction from Springfield Interchange to north of Dulles Toll Road (14 miles)
  • Upgrades to 11 key interchanges
  • Improved connections for all new interchanges, particularly at I-66
  • Building 58 new bridges and overpasses
  • New HOT Lanes dynamic tolling system
  • More than 80,000 linear feet of new sound walls, protecting neighboring communities
  • New bike paths and sidewalks on
  • every Beltway crossing
slide7

5 years Dec. 2007 – Dec. 2012

30% design to final detailed design

ROW acquisition (144 parcels)

Utility relocations

(12 owners – 102,000 feet of utilities)

Construction

Start up / check out tolling system

Toll Revenue - December 20, 2012

I-66 at I-495

Schedule

To D.C.

slide8

One of largest highway improvement projects in U.S ($1.4B Design Build Contract).

Over 900 employees and subcontractors on the job

Current $35 - $40 million per month burn rate

73,513 cubic yards of concrete

1.3 million tons of asphalt

21.4 thousand tons of steel

224+ pieces of heavy equipment

890,000 sq. ft. of retaining walls

80,000 linear ft. of sound walls

Key Construction Metrics

slide9

Safety – keeping workers and drivers safe

The Challenges

200,000+ vehicles a day

Tight construction footprint,

multiple lane shifts, narrow lanes

Frustrated and distracted

drivers/cell phones

Large amount of night work

Aggressive schedule – entire 14

miles under construction

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

slide10

Safety – keeping workers and drivers safe

Action Steps

Emphasize total team commitment to Safety

Set and track safety expectations

Utilize engineered safety controls

whenever possible

Aggressive VDOT media outreach

Orange Cones No Phones

Construction activities

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

I-495 over Rt. 50

slide11

Safety – keeping workers and drivers safe

Results:

Fewer serious work zone accidents

2.8 million safe hours on job with only one lost time

.84 OSHA Rate

Increased program ownership

at all levels

Still a work in progress

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

slide12

Construction

Construction Approach

Design/Build

Design packaging feeds into construction

planning

Just in time design

Construction involvement in design

Unique Contractual Relationship

Project divided into 4 construction area

Construction Area Manager and independent

construction team

VDOT/GEC leads paired with area managers

Key decision making level

Most interchanges 3 stage construction approach

12–18 month schedule savings realized at 2 interchanges by switching to a 2 stage approach

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

slide13

Construction

Work Phasing

Build outer 2 lanes: 2008 – 2011

Rebuild/lengthen all bridges & overpasses along alignment: 2008 – 2011

Shift traffic into two new outer lanes:

2010 - 2011

Build inner two (HOT) lanes: 2011 – 2012

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

Braddock Rd.

slide14

Construction

Demolition Approach

Bridge demo at night to allow

needed lane closures

Noise an issue to nearby

residents and hotels.

Utilized techniques to speed

work while decreasing noise

Media & public outreach

Maximize lane closures and duration of

closures to increase hours available for

demolition (in some cases coordinate

with the state to provide full road closures,

with detours in place, to accelerate demolition

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

SB I-495 at Rt. 123

Little River Turnpike

slide15

Construction

Demolition Approach

Utilize specialist demo subcontractor with specialized

demolition equipment (Hydraulic shear, large hydraulic claw)

Careful planning of the work

to make most efficient use of

the lane closure window and

maximize productivity

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

Rt. 123

slide16

Construction

Field Construction

Switch from drilled shafts to

driven piles

Utility relocation & work

sequencing

Integrated Right of Way

acquisition process

Multiple work fronts within each

interchange

Double shift and weekend work

of critical activities

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

I-495 at Dulles Toll Road

slide17

Construction

Field Construction

Detailed planning and coordination, particularly when in close proximity to third party construction (Dulles Metro)

Balance of self perform and subcontract resources to maximize work fronts

Close internal coordination between functions (roadway, structures, MOT, utilities) to maximize efficiency of the work and interface between groups

Significant Project Challenges and Successes

Conclusion

Moving from 30% design review to ROW acquisition, utility relocation, construction & toll service within 5 years -

remarkable accomplishment

VDOT/GEC/Transurban/Fluor-Lane have worked hard to succeed in this PPP

Truly unique project
