e-Bidding with Bid Express Training Sessions Offered by SHA

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) continues to update internal processes and develop COMAR-compliant electronic proposal packages to complete our transition from paper/hardcopy bidding to electronic bidding. All highway construction and maintenance projects will be moved to the electronic bidding platform by the end of the summer. At that time, paper bids or bids on CDs will no longer be accepted for projects. Contract documents will be made available through eMaryland Marketplace and will continue to be offered at no charge on this site. Registration and a paid subscription are required to submit bids through the internet-based Bid Express system. Potential bidders are informed that the registration process takes up to 7 business days. In addition, SHA will be letting pilot projects in advance of the September changeover, with the first projects advertised as early as July 2017. A bid extension will not be granted for delays in registration and/or errors in submission of electronic bids. For more information about Bid Express registration and subscription, please visit https://www.bidx.com/site/registration. Presently bidders are unable to sign up or register to bid as MDOT SHA is still working through aforementioned updates. An update will be posted once the site is opened for registration to bid. Additionally, web-based training is available for bidders and the offered sessions are as follows: Session 1: May 23, 2017 9:00 AM – 11:00...

Aggregates Industry Prepares for Infrastructure Week 2017

Today, the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) announced its participation in Infrastructure Week, which will take place from May 15-19. Businesses, labor organizations, elected officials and people around the country participate in this national advocacy and educational event to spread the message that it is #TimeToBuild America’s infrastructure. Throughout the week, NSSGA and member companies will highlight the importance of infrastructure investment to our economy and to the aggregates industry, which would play a significant role in any plan to revitalize our roads, bridges, ports, airports, etc. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, almost four in 10 of America’s 614,387 bridges are over 50 years old. Traffic delays on outdated and congested roads cost American businesses over $45 billion each year, according to the Partnership for America’s Economic Expressway. NSSGA is a proud member of that partnership and a leader of the Highway Materials Group and the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC). “The nation’s infrastructure is the foundation of our jobs, quality of life and economic competitiveness, yet this system has been under-funded and poorly maintained for decades,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO.  “Investments in infrastructure are an investment in our country’s future, and Infrastructure Week puts a much-needed national spotlight on how we can grow our country and economy.” Click here to continue...
