CDOT Finalizes Contract with Central 70 Project Developer
Milestone is one more step toward the start of construction in 2018

This week the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) approved the Project Agreement, or contract, with Kiewit Meridiam Partners (KMP), the selected contractor for the Central 70 Project. The Project Agreement establishes KMP’s scope of work in delivering the project and sets forth each party’s rights and obligations over the term of the contract. Approval of the PA means that KMP is now officially on board to build Central 70, and the agreement will be in effect until 30 years after construction completion. The next step is financial close, the stage at which financing is secured. 

As part of CDOT’s transparency commitments, all required documents related to the commercial close, including the Project Agreement and a summary, have been posted on its website.
