Souces of Project Support (Non-monetary)

Checkbox Checked Land: The Interstate was widened to the inside, using the pre-existing right-of-way, eliminating the need to purchase and acquire land for additional lanes. However, right-of-way was purchased off-site in advance of the project for stormwater treatment ponds.
Checkbox Checked Revenue Stream (Cash Flow) Created Through Initial Commitment of Public Sponsor(s): The Design-Build-Finance entity financed the project with a commitment from FDOT to be fully reimbursed within 5 years of the project beginning. Based on the awarded bid amount for the project, the Department scheduled payments to the Design-Build Firm on a quarterly basis. Funds were available beginning January 2007, and each quarter thereafter, additional funds were available to be paid out to the Contractor based on their production on the project. The first payment to the Contractor was in September 2007 and monthly payments continued until the available funds ran out in August 2008. The Design-Build Firm then received quarterly payments until the final payment, which will be October 2011.
Checkbox Checked Environmental Clearance: The Design-Build Firm was responsible for obtaining all environmental permits prior to construction. Permitting agencies involved included the South Florida Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Army Corps of Engineers. The permits obtained were for stormwater management permitting, wetland protection measures, wetland mitigation, requirements for protected species, etc. All efforts and costs associated with permitting and mitigation were up to the Design-Build Firm.

From Private Capital Markets Directly to Producers as Debt: The Design-Build Firm bid the project knowing they would be paid back on a quarterly basis over a period of 5 years. Their bid had to include their cost to finance the project. However, FDOT did make progress payments to the Design-Build Firm based on their project production and based on the quarterly funds available for payment. The dollars from the 5 funding sources were put into FDOT’s work program and cash flowed over the 5 years.
