Project description

This research project is targeted toward local road agencies rather than MnDOT. MnDOT currently uses incentive/disincentive (I/D) contracting based on construction completion dates; whereas, the local agencies are interested in exploring I/D contracting for higher initial pavement quality such as higher density or better ride quality. The local agencies are also interested in knowing if the I/D method results in the better contractors being selected for the job.
