Construction Advertisement Plan (CAP)

Page Loading...

This is MaineDOT's bid advertisement plan for capital projects to be advertised during the current calendar year. It appears below sorted by Work Type and can also be sorted by Planned Advertise Date, Location/Title, Project Identification No., or Estimated Construction Cost Range. A searchable Project Map is also provided. Once posted online, this document will provide a static snapshot of MaineDOT's original plan, except as noted below.

In years in which major funding components of MaineDOT's capital program are being debated, partial plans or mid-year alterations may be required. Such years could include odd numbered years during which state budgets and bonding levels are typically decided, and years in which federal transportation authorization bills are pending.

The Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) announced through the above referenced press release it is revising its Construction Advertising Plan. This is part of MaineDOT’s efforts to reconcile surging construction costs with available funding. This revision includes removing eleven projects that were due to go out to bid this year, totaling $45.5M as estimated in January 2019. This represents 11.6% of the value of projects that were originally included in the CAP.

This Plan is to be distinguished from the Construction Advertisement Schedule, which is a separate dynamic document updated online on the first of each month. The current schedule will reflect changes caused by such factors as cash flow, bid prices, local and public input, and design and permitting.
