Update on WSDOT mega-programs, small-business opportunities – 2023 has proven to be a busy year of design and construction for WSDOT’s central Puget Sound megaprograms, providing significant contracting opportunities for small businesses and companies owned by minorities, women or veterans (MSVWBEs). WSDOT is committed to providing a notable share of that upcoming work to historically under-represented businesses. WSDOT’s May 2023 Diversity and Inclusive Contracting Quarterly Progress Report details what these megaprograms may have to offer MSVWBEs.

One of the state’s largest-ever transportation projects—replacement of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct with a downtown Seattle tunnel—wrapped-up this summer. Approximately $5.6 billion worth of work remains, however, on three other WSDOT megaprograms: the I-405/SR 167 Program, the Puget Sound Gateway Program and the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program.
