Minnesota's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The State of Minnesota is committed to diversity and inclusion in its public procurement process. The goal is to ensure that those providing services to the State are representative of our Minnesota communities and include businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. Creating broader opportunities for historically under-represented groups provides for additional options and greater competition in the marketplace, creates stronger relationships and engagement within our communities, and fosters economic development and equality.

Whenever possible, MnDOT strongly encourages the use of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE's), Targeted Group Businesses (TGB's) and Veteran Owned Businesses (VET).

Flood Feasibility Study - Henderson

Brief Description: MnDOT requests responses for a feasibility study to evaluate the bridges and approach roadways, over the Minnesota River for Trunk Highway 19, Trunk Highway 93, and County Road 6 to determine what capital improvements would be necessary to minimize roadway closures and/or add capacity due to flooding events for the existing river crossings and their approach roadways.  The evaluation will include an alternatives analysis to identify a range of construction approaches.  The MnDOT Bridge office is currently developing a hydraulic model.  The resulting data will be used to complete the flood mitigation feasibility study.  Bridge and construction alternatives considered will include the hydraulic model analysis (by MnDOT), high-level pre-NEPA environmental screening and process overview; appropriate traffic analysis; alternatives identification and analysis; constructability analysis; total project cost estimate including engineering, right of way, construction and mitigation; benefit/cost analysis; project schedule and delivery timelines.  It is desired to use existing roadway alignments.  The study will also look at the road subgrade for capacity to act as a low head dam. The evaluation will include stakeholder involvement, such as representatives from affected cities and counties; the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and other permitting/regulatory agencies.

Spill Response Project Management Assistance

Brief Description: MnDOT personnel frequently respond to incidences where motor vehicle fluid and/or cargo spills have occurred. At these scenes, vehicle fluids and fuels such as antifreeze, gasoline, diesel fuel and cargo the vehicle is transporting may be released onto the roadway or adjacent MnDOT property. Roadway lanes remain closed until vehicle fluid spills and any cargo are removed from the travel lanes. Unrecovered spills can leave chemicals that impact the soil and groundwater in MnDOT’s Right Of Way (ROW) at levels that MnDOT would need to clean up and dispose of during any future maintenance or road construction. MnDOT frequently responds to these highway incidences to protect motorist safety, minimize impacts to the environment, make certain of proper cleanup and open the roadway to travel.

MnDOT’s Contaminated Materials Management Team (CMMT), a section of the Office of Environmental Stewardship, and MnDOT District personnel work together to address spill cleanup adjacent to the roadway, and make certain that vehicle fluid and cargo releases occurring on the interstate and state highway systems are adequately mitigated. CMMT tracks all highway releases and documents the clean-up process to make sure that each release moves through to a site closure in accordance with MnDOT’s specifications.

MnDOT requests responses for the management and documentation of these state highway and interstate highway releases.
