INFORMATIONAL MEETING NOTICE
District 1, TH 53 Relocation Project

Notice to all Potential CMCG Proposers

 

TH 53, between Duluth and International Falls, is a major transportation corridor serving northeastern Minnesota. Since 1960, portions of TH 53 in St. Louis County were located on land owned by mining companies. The highway is located on these lands through easement rights. The current mine owner and landowner, United Taconite and RGGS Land and Minerals, have provided notice to MnDOT to relocate the road per the original agreement. In accordance with the 1960 agreement provisions, United Taconite and RGGS Land and Minerals have given MnDOT notice that they will be terminating the easement rights for the portion of TH 53 that is located between approximately Cuyana Drive and 2nd Avenue in Virginia. The 1960 agreement required the highway to be moved within three years of receiving the termination notice but United Taconite and RGGS Land and Minerals have, by agreement, allowed seven years for the move to occur. MnDOT is required to relocate the highway outside of the planned mining area and remove all roadway facilities, bridges, and utilities by May 2017. MnDOT is currently in negotiations for a time extension to November 2017. For the purposes of this RFP, the completion date to relocate the highway outside the planned mining area and remove all roadway facilities, bridges and utilities shall be November 2017.

 

An RFP has been issued by MnDOT, to all contractors and teams of contractors (Proposer), interested in a Construction Manager General Contractor (CMGC) P/T services contract for the TH 53, Highway 53 Relocation Project. MnDOT is inviting such Proposers to submit competitive proposals for CMGC services for the Project. The project scope involves abandonment of the existing TH 53 in the area of the United Taconite mine and relocation of a segment of TH 53. It is anticipated that the new alignment will consist of a bridge section carrying four lanes of traffic, plus shoulders and a pedestrian trail, and an interchange at the intersection of TH 53 and State Highway 135. The final alignment has not been determined.

 

MnDOT will be conducting an informational meeting regarding this project, as follows:

 

When: December 2, 2014, 1:00-3:00PM Central Standard Time

Where: MnDOT District 1: 1123 Mesaba Avenue, Duluth, Minnesota 55811
