IMPORTANT NEWS!

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.


eMaryland Marketplace

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.

Contractor's Inquiry Responses

Contract No.AX0977414

Inq. 5Post Date:   7/21/2015Inquiry Date:   7/21/2015
 Q. Item #9013 - Bagged Pea Gravel. It appears that Item #9012 is a duplicate item (same quantity). Please clarify or should #9012 be eliminated?
 A. This contract uses Rapid Hardening Cementious Material, Class 2, Type 2, for many concrete repairs. The qualified products list for Rapid Hardening Cement can be found at: http://www.roads.maryland.gov/OMT/cm-rapid.pdf Some of these Rapid Hardening Cement products need an aggregate additive while others come already mixed. Both NO. 7 aggregate and pea gravel are acceptable aggregate additives for those Rapid Hardening Cements that require the aggregate additive. Item number 9012 is not a duplicate and should be included in the contract
Inq. 4Post Date:   7/21/2015Inquiry Date:   7/21/2015
 Q. Item #9012 - Bagged #7 Aggregate - Various calls to supplier, a product by this description unavailable. Please clarify or inform us as to where this product can be obtained.
 A. This contract uses Rapid Hardening Cementious Material, Class 2, Type 2, for many concrete repairs. The qualified products list for Rapid Hardening Cement can be found at: http://www.roads.maryland.gov/OMT/cm-rapid.pdf Some of these Rapid Hardening Cement products need an aggregate additive while others come already mixed. Both NO. 7 aggregate and pea gravel are acceptable aggregate additives for those Rapid Hardening Cements that require the aggregate additive. NO. 7 aggregate is defined on page 656 of the "MDOT SHA Standard Specifications for Construction and Materials". The SHA does not endorse any one supplier of material, but a search on the internet shows one local supplier: thestonestore.com. They carry NO. 7 stone which they can bag. We would leave it up to the contractor to find additional suppliers
Inq. 3Post Date:   7/21/2015Inquiry Date:   7/14/2015
 Q. Page 48 - concerning bonding seems to be contrary to the Proposal Form Packet in the Proposal. Particularly p. 325 and p. 326. Please advise.
 A. The Administration is only requiring a Performance Bond on this contract as stated in the Special Provisions (page 48). The Special Provisions supersedes the boiler plate in the Proposal Form Packet (pages 325/326)T
Inq. 2Post Date:   7/21/2015Inquiry Date:   7/14/2015
 Q. Item #4035 - Portable Concrete Mixer. I suspect that the quantity of "80" hours is a typographical error as historically the quantity for this item has been 3000 hours. Left as is the current quantity is severely understated and will result in an unbalanced bid?
 A. See Addendum No. 1 correcting the quantity of this item.
Inq. 1Post Date:   7/21/2015Inquiry Date:   7/13/2015
 Q. Items 9018 and 9020 - Bridge Rail Aluminum Single/Double Round. Where can the details be found for these particular items? Supplier is unaware. Please clarify.
 A. See Addendum No. 1 for detail sheets.
