Helping Clients Secure Funding to Build Their Capital Projects

Projects include the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program, the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program (the world’s largest diameter bored tunnel project), and the I-5 Columbia River Crossing. Our financial planning work for the $4.6-billion SR 520 Program included the development of the initial Federal Highway Administration financial plans for its three major projects and helped secure a $300 million federal Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan. Our team also prepared detailed gross-to- net toll revenue forecasts to inform pricing policy decision-making and program financing.
