  • Effective January 1, 2015: ODOT Requires Delivery of Roadway Digital Data Bidding Reference Packages

    Contractors have been looking for, and adopting, many tools and methods to cut costs and improve profit margins. Contractors who construct ODOT’s highways are increasingly using machine control equipment in order to provide more cost-efficient projects. Effective January 1, 2015, ODOT requires delivery of a digital data bidding reference package for most roadway construction projects. The following video explains more about this new requirement, which is anticipated to yield construction savings on the order of 6% and time savings of 30-40%, according to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
