Metro to Hold Free Construction Opportunity Workshop
Business owners will soon be able to submit proposals for more than $50 million of capital project work to be completed by Metro over the next several years. The majority of the funding for these projects is being made available to Metro through the Federal Transit Administration from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
General Contractors and sub-contractors, including Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), can learn about upcoming construction projects being planned by Metro at a free workshop being held Wednesday, June 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The workshop will take place in the AT&T Library Telecommunity Room at Harris-Stowe State University, 3026 Laclede Avenue in St. Louis, MO.
Metro is sponsoring the workshop to ensure potential contractors and sub-contractors have information needed to participate in contracts. “Having information available about successful contract submissions strengthens the bidding process and helps ensure a level playing field for all businesses,” said Larry Jackson, Vice President of Procurement, Inventory Management and Supplier Diversity.
The workshop is free, but seating is limited. Participants must register in advance. Registration forms can be found on Metro’s website at: https://www.metrostlouis.org/InsideMetro/BusinessOpps/HarStoweConstWorkshop.pdf.
Completed forms can be returned by e-mail, fax or regular mail.
