MDOT Begins Publishing Project Lists
Wednesday, August 23, 2006
In response to MITA’s request for more advance information about anticipated construction projects and projected letting dates, MDOT will now publish that information on their website. Beginning with the first publication that went on line Monday, August 21st, MDOT will publish the following three documents on a monthly basis:
3 Month Projections: This document will be a listing of anticipated projects in the three months following the next and currently advertised letting. This listing when combined with the advertised projects list will provide the industry a four-month snapshot of anticipated trunkline projects and letting dates.
Significant Projects: This document will be a listing of the “larger” projects anticipated for the entire fiscal year. These “larger” or significant projects are those that generally have an estimated construction cost in excess of $5 million.
Project Letting $ Amounts: This document will be a table showing the monthly lettings for the fiscal year with the number of anticipated projects and the estimated construction costs for each letting.
MDOT will update all three documents on a monthly basis with planned updates for the remainder of this calendar year being September 25th, October 23rd, and December 11th. The schedule for updates for calendar year 2007 will be published when that schedule has been established.
In using the project and letting information provided in these documents in your business plan or bid letting strategy development, we remind you that the information is “draft” in nature and subject to potential change. In acknowledging that the project development process is dynamic, we are hopeful all members understand that some anticipated letting dates or construction cost estimates could change, and likely others will change.
You can access these “anticipated projects” publications through our MITA website by double clicking on “MDOT” in the horizontal tab bar, and then clicking on “MDOT Home” along the left margin.
