Legislation Would Alter Design-Build Threshold for WSDOT Projects

AGC secured changes to legislation that modifies provisions relating to design-build procedures for WSDOT projects. The legislation (Senate Bill 5250) establishes a $1 million project cost threshold over which WSDOT may consider using DB (the original bill had no minimum threshold). The legislation also requires that WSDOT provide a written explanation upon request on why DB was not selected for projects over $10 million.
