Master Bid Item Lists
These following lists consist of bid item numbers, descriptions and pay units.
Weighted unit prices are also provided for items with sufficient bid histories. The unit prices are based on recent bid prices. Because unit costs vary substantially by quantity, work type, location and prevailing competitive environment, these weighted unit costs may not be a reasonable basis for estimating costs.
These weighted unit prices are provided primarily for use by municipalities and other agencies that do business with CTDOT and who are not required to utilize AASHTO’S TRNS•PORT Estimator software for developing estimates. Estimates for DOT projects should never be based on these unit prices. Cost Estimates for Department projects should be prepared in accordance with the Cost Estimating Guidelines and the application of TRNS•PORT Estimator software.
