E-Bid Update (December 29, 2017): 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), the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) has revised few standards listed in the Book of Standards for Highway and Incidental Structures. The following standards are 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 are let (i.e., bid open) after December 31, 2017. Prospective bidders are to take notice of this revision.
E-Bid Update (December 08, 2017): There are three situations when a bidder MUST re-attach ALL the attachment files when resubmitting a bid:
- MDOT SHA postpones a proposal to a different letting date;
- MDOT SHA postpones a proposal and then re-uploads the proposal to the same letting where it was originally uploaded; or
- MDOT SHA withdraws a proposal and then reposts that proposal to the same letting where it was originally uploaded.
Re-attaching attachments means navigating to EVERY
attachment location in the ".ebsx file" and re-selecting
the attachment using the 'Browse' button, prior to re-submission.
E-Bid Update (August 29, 2017): For all highway improvement and highway maintenance projects advertised henceforth the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration will accept only electronic bids. The bid needs to be submitted at https://www.bidx.com/maryland/main. Paper bids will not be accepted. Instructions on electronic bidding are available here.
Since August 4, 2015, MDOT SHA has been posting project links for eMaryland Marketplace (eMM) on the Contractors Information Center (CIC) project page. This option makes it easier for contractors to find the project information on eMM. As of March 15, 2016 MDOT SHA will not post the actual pre-bid documents for the advertisements, addenda and project quantities on the CIC. These documents will be found on eMM for each project link provided. The last addendum with revised quantities will have the all-inclusive list of items in the contract, if applicable.
