 MassDOT Municipal Project Guide Now Available

 

[September 27, 2011]:  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Municipal Project Guide For Road and Bridge Projects has been prepared jointly by MassDOT and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) to provide guidance to municipalities about the process of initiating and undertaking a municipal transportation project. Its primary audience is intended to be municipal officials seeking to plan, design and construct a project in conjunction with MassDOT using state or a combination of state and federal funds. In this process, the municipality is responsible for funding the design of the project.

 

While written for municipal public officials, the guide also benefits MassDOT and Design Consultants as it addresses the relationships between them and a municipality. All three need to work together to successfully deliver a quality infrastructure project to the community.

 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Municipal Project Guide For Road and Bridge Projects is an interactive online tool that provides the user with simple hyperlinks to existing reference materials that contain detailed guidance about various steps in the planning, design and construction of road and bridge projects.

The Guide includes a section on the use of QBS by municipal clients. 

The Municipal Project Guide is a direct result of the partnering done by MassDOT’s Highway Division and ACEC/Massachusetts.
