Contacts for District specific information are also provided.
- Inflation Factors -- updated 8/2/2011
- Advisory Inflation Factors for Previous Years (1987-2012) -- Highway construction cost inflation rates for previous years. May be useful for adjusting project costs from prior years to the current Fiscal Year. -- updated 09/12/2011
- Construction Cost Indicators - The report will be updated on a monthly basis. The current version was posted on February 13, 2013.
- Highway Construction Costs - Highway construction costs are based on the typical design characteristics of common road types for a centerline mile of roadway and statewide average price estimates for pay items. Generic estimates for these common road types are available for reference purposes from the State Estimates Office. Please note that construction costs vary across the state and noticeable cost differences may occur within a single district. District-level cost information is available for some areas. Please contact the district office(s) where the project will be located to determine which estimates should be used.
