The procurement process for the I-15 “The Point” Design-Build Project in Utah included a unique scoring approach to minimize impacts to the traveling public. Proposals for the 7-mile urban interstate reconstruction project included MOT duration costs, which defined impacts of various traffic configurations implemented through the construction.
