The Dragados Team, a joint venture composed of Dragados USA Inc. and Schiavone Construction Company LLC, submitted the lowest price proposal at $756.

The Dragados Team’s proposal included a bored tunnel and construction will begin on Island 1 in the fall of 2017.  Total construction of the parallel tunnel at the Thimble Shoal Channel is expected to take approximately five years.

The new tunnel will run parallel to an existing Bay Bridge tunnel, which connects Virginia Beach, VA, with the state’s Eastern Shore.
