In accordance with the joint agreement between American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) about the implementation of the AASHTO Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH), MDOT SHA revised several standards that are in the Book of Standards for Highway and Incidental Structures. The following standards were revised: MD 605.23, MD 605.26, MD 605.27, MD 605.28, MD 605.28-01, MD 605.31 and MD 605.32. These revised standards pertain to w-beam traffic barriers and are available online. These standards apply to all projects that have been let (i.e., bid open) since December 31, 2017. Prospective bidders: Note this revision.
Bidders: You MUST re-attach ALL attachment files when resubmitting a bid in any of these situations:
You must navigate EVERY attachment location in the ".ebsx file" and re-select the attachment using the 'Browse' button, prior to re-submission.
For all highway improvement and highway maintenance projects advertised henceforth, MDOT SHA will accept only electronic bids. Submit bids at https://www.bidx.com/maryland/main. Paper bids will not be accepted. Instructions on electronic bidding are here.
Since 2015, MDOT SHA has posted project links for eMaryland Marketplace (eMM) in this Contractors Information Center (CIC). This makes it easier for contractors to find project information on eMM. As of 2016 MDOT SHA no longer posts actual pre-bid documents for the advertisements, addenda and project quantities on the CIC. These documents are now on eMM for each project link provided. The last addendum with revised quantities will have the all-inclusive list of items in the contract.
