ROCHESTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation identified four contracting firms that will receive a request for proposal for the Construction Manager General Contractor role on the Winona Bridge project.

The four contracting firms selected include:

  • Ames Construction, Inc. from Burnsville, Minn.
  • PCL Civil Constructors, Inc. from Tampa, Fla.
  • Edward Kraemer and Sons, Inc. from Burnsville, Minn.
  • Lunda Construction Co. from Black River Falls, Wis.

The contracting firms were shortlisted based on their qualifications, including evaluation of the contractor’s background and experience with projects similar to the Winona Bridge project.

Technical proposals from the team are due in mid-November with final selection of the contracting team expected in early to mid-December.  

The Winona Bridge project is the first MnDOT project to use the CMGC procurement method. With CMGC, a contracting team is hired during the design phase to aid in estimating costs, assessing project risks, reviewing construction staging and maintenance of traffic, and tailoring the final design towards the most cost effective contractor means and methods.
