PROJECT DELIVERY

In an effort to expedite project delivery, the Interstate 24 Bridge Replacement project will be completed under a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) contract. The CM/GC project delivery method involves a contractor in the design and construction phases of the project. The partnership between TDOT, the Designer, and the Contractor reduces risks and improves constructability. For more information on the CM/GC process for this project, visit the (CM/GC) I-24 project information page under the Construction Division section of the TDOT website.
