About Bid Letting
This site has pre-letting and post-letting information about Mn/DOT highway construction and maintenance projects advertised for bids. It is designed for Mn/DOT personnel, contractors and suppliers interested in the highway bidding process.
How to Bid
Mn/DOT has no pre qualification requirements for submitting bids on construction and maintenance projects. Check the Guide to Bidding and how to bid page for more information.
Ads are published at least three weeks before letting for construction and maintenance projects.
Pre-Letting (Before bid)
Mn/DOT posts information about the bid process on this section of the Web site. Download information and data to bid on the construction and maintenance projects.
Post-Letting (After bid)
Mn/DOT staff reviews bids and, in most cases, awards projects within 30 days. Once Mn/DOT accepts the executed contract and bond, the bid is approved and the contractor can begin work. Mn/DOT notifies the lowest responsible bidder of contract approval.
