NDOT Hosting Meeting to Spur Disadvantaged Business Participation in Future Spaghetti Bowl Improvements
NDOT will host a Sept. 25 workshop to provide resources for minority and female-owned companies to participate in the future Spaghetti Bowl Xpress road improvement project
Carson City, NV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will host a Sept. 25 workshop to provide resources for minority and female-owned companies to participate in the future Spaghetti Bowl Xpress road improvement project.
To ensure minority, woman-owned and small businesses are able to equitably bid to work on state transportation projects and programs, NDOT certifies Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) businesses, per federal guidelines, to participate in NDOT projects, from road construction to planning, public outreach and more. NDOT also hosts informative workshops and training sessions assisting Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.
The event will introduce suppliers and sub-contractors to the transportation department’s DBE program and outline the certification process. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with general contractor proposers for potential subcontracting work on NDOT’s Spaghetti Bowl Xpress road project. Scheduled to begin in late 2019, the project will widen the eastbound Interstate 80 to southbound Interstate 580 ramp and add auxiliary merge lanes on southbound I-580 as a first phase of spaghetti bowl and metro interstate renovations.
The meeting will be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25 in the Nugget Casino Resort’s Redwood conference rooms in Sparks. Those interested in attending must RSVP by Sept. 20 at bit.ly/ndotsbx. Further information on NDOT disadvantaged business opportunities is available through the “Doing Business” section of nevadadot.com.
