Design-Build for Locals

Design-Build for Locals

In 2009 the Legislature established a design-build pilot program for counties and cities interested in utilizing the design-build procurement process for local transportation projects. The three-year pilot program allows for up to 9 local projects to be selected by a design-build selection council and incorporates educational components for both the local engineer that has a project selected for the design-build process and the design-build firms that are interested in bidding on the transportation project. Please note that this process is not approved for local federally funded projects.
