A highway project that has been well scoped and well-designed is more likely to get accurate bids, reduce project costs, and meet the needs of our customers. Each project receives a Design Quality Index (DQI) rating at the time of completion based on 15 design elements and five additional elements for structure projects. Our goal is for projects to achieve an 80 percent DQI rating.
