Oct. 4, 2013 – The Indiana Department of Transportation and the Indiana Finance Authority, on behalf of the Joint Board of the Louisville Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project are preparing for the development and operation of a toll collection system for the Bridge Project currently under construction between Louisville, Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
The Joint Board has authorized these agencies to issue two Requests for Proposals (RFP) for toll integration services within the next three months. The Indiana Department of Transportation is expected to release an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) RFP for the commodity purchase of the lane ETC technology (Multi-Protocol Readers, E-ZPass and “6C” Transponders). The Indiana Finance Authority will then initiate a separate procurement for a Toll System Provider (TSP). The TSP RFP is expected to be released for roadside and back office systems, systems integration and operational services. The TSP RFP will have two parts, a Request for Qualification (RFQ) to pre-qualify vendors and a RFP sent to the prequalified vendors.
The Points of Contact for these procurements are listed below:
