Opportunities for KY DBEs- Right-of-Way
With the authorization of $100 million in bonds in Kentucky, right-of-way progress has increased on the Ohio River Bridges Project. Right-of-way is the acquisition process for properties affected by the Project. While limited acquisitions began in 2007 with the acquisition of a few residential properties in Louisville’s east end, the recent financing has resulted in an increase in activities.
While the appraisal and acquisition contract services have already been secured, additional services will be required which will provide opportunities for qualified KY Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.
Residential Abatement and Demolition
Contractors experienced in the abatement of hazardous materials, most commonly asbestos, will also be needed for the residential portion of right-of-way. Pre-construction prequalification will be required for hazardous materials and must be applied for through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC) Division of Professional Services prior to bidding on the work. Contact Mike Hill (502) 564-4555.
