New Mexico Expands Design-Build Authority to Highway and Road Projects
Posted in Design-Build

New Mexico will now allow certain highway and projects funded in whole or in part by federal funds to use the design-build delivery method.  On the last day (March 9, 2016) to sign bills from the most recent legislative session, Governor Susana Martinez signed HB 206 , which permits the Department of Transportation to use the design-build delivery method for road and highway projects above $50 million.   Previously, road and highway projects were specifically prohibited from using design-build delivery unless part of a very limited number of demonstration projects.  Opening road and highway projects to design-build will provide New Mexico with the opportunity to reap the well-established benefits of this alternative delivery system.
