The Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) invites qualified firms to a contractor information meeting to inform contractors and request feedback regarding the Memphis Innovation Corridor Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project. Although the meeting can be attended virtually, it is highly recommended that contractors attend in person to take advantage of opportunities to engage and network with potential teaming partners, including Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE).
About the Project:
The Memphis Innovation Corridor project will provide for construction of a bus rapid transit (BRT) system connecting downtown, the Memphis Medical District, and the University of Memphis. The eight-mile corridor includes one mile of exclusive bus lanes, construction of 31 level-boarding transit stations, reconstruction or improvement to traffic signals, implementation of transit signal priority, and streetscape and pedestrian improvements.
Purpose of the Meeting:
This meeting will provide an opportunity for potential contractors and interested stakeholders to gain information about the project and requirements, review the project schedule and construction phasing, and offer feedback and suggestions on the project.
