Ask questions about upcoming projects here.

​ ​

Please use this form to submit ALL prebid questions.  Prebid questions will be posted on the web site even if there is not an addendum issued for that project.   An addendum may be issued depending upon the information received and the impact on the competitive bid letting process.

Upon completion of this form, please click the Submit button.  Submission of this form acknowledges acceptance of terms for use.   

Questions should be submitted 4 days before the bid opening. Questions submitted after this "deadline" will be reviewed, however, a response is not guaranteed.  

Please limit one question per submission. Since we can only post a response to a submission once, we can answer questions more expediently and maintain simplicity and clarity on the Prebid Question Answer page.
