EMERGENCY LETTING BRIDGE RAIL REPAIR
The barrier rail on the ramp bridge from I-480 eastbound to I-29 northbound in Council Bluffs has been struck and severely damaged.  The Department will be using emergency letting procedures to select a contractor to perform repairs.  A letting date has not been determined.  Monitor this page for details.

ACTION REQUIRED FOR BIDDING WITH IOWA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) is moving to the new AASHTOWare Project Bids TM software starting with the letting of November 20, 2018. This transition will require vendors to create a new Info Tech Digital ID for use with the Bid Express (R) service at www.bidx.com. The new Digital ID is approved using a paperless process and the cost will be refunded for any existing Digital ID holders who are recreating their active Expedite Digital ID. After the ID is created, you must send a request within the Bid Express service to bid to Iowa DOT.
 
The process to create the ID and request to bid can take up to a week. As a bidder for Iowa DOT, you should immediately download the new software (located in the DOWNLOADS box to the right) and create your new Digital ID. If this process is not completed before the transition, you will be unable to bid. Having the new ID will not impact your ability to bid any lettings prior to the November 20, 2018 letting. A detailed announcement, including directions for creating your new digital ID are in the Also Available box at the right of this page (Project Bids Digital ID Instructions).
 
The Info Tech Customer Support Team is available to assist by phone at 888-352-BIDX (2439) or email (customer.support@bidx.com). The www.bidx.com training center also includes new training materials for the AASHTOWare Project Bids software.

ALL QUESTIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH BIDX Q&A
If a prospective bidder, for a proposal for which the Department is accepting bids, is in doubt as to the true meaning of any part of the contract documents, the bidder may submit to the Contracts Engineer a request for additional information, explanations, or interpretations. The request shall be submitted to the Q&A forum at the letting website used by the Department. Questions should be submitted as early as possible so answers can be researched and posted. Questions submitted within two business days of the letting will likely not be answered. Interpretations may be in the form of an addendum to the contract documents. The Contracting Authority will not be responsible for any information, explanation, or interpretation from any other source.
