Every year the department contracts with the road building industry to improve our transportation system through a competitive bid process. The bid let schedule is critical to the contractor's ability to plan for resources and our ability to maximize public funds. Bas​ed on industry input, we revised our goal in SFY 2015 to 54 percent of annual project funds let by January 1st.
