RFQs for Move EBR Program Managers Published in The Advocate

BATON ROUGE, LA — February 22, 2019 — Today, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced two Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) for Move EBR Program Managers have been published today in The Advocate.

The Program Managers will be responsible for the oversight and administration of the $1.1 billion Move EBR Infrastructure Enhancement and Traffic Mitigation Program, which was approved by voters in East Baton Rouge Parish on December 8, 2018. The Move EBR projects will be split into two categories requiring two separate RFQs: one for new capacity improvement projects and one for community enhancement/corridor improvement projects.

“Turning to the private industry to manage the Move EBR program implementation and prioritization allows us to deliver top-tier results as we work to transform the infrastructure of East Baton Rouge Parish,” said Mayor Broome. “My goal is to roll out these critical projects to residents as quickly as possible. This approach allows us to focus on making short-term improvements as we construct long-term capacity projects, which take longer to complete. We look forward to breaking ground on these vital mobility projects in the very near future.”

Once the RFQ process is complete, the City-Parish will work with the Program Managers to prioritize the 70 projects included in Move EBR.
