I'm gonna be honest, I'm surprised MoDOT has any contract lettings, since they are so short on money.

They have money to do maintenance projects and all but not enough to do big projects. About 200 million or so every year is used to pay back the bonds that they took out for the new I-70 bridge and the 64 extension to Wentzville. Unless the legislature increases the gas tax or finds another source of revenue like tolling, etc., they won't have money to do projects like 70 between KC and STL. I believe they're gonna be paying off those bonds till about 2033.

J N Winkler:
MoDOT lets many of what it calls Job Order Contracting (JOC) contracts, which are for small maintenance-type jobs like mowing, fence repair, etc. and involve the contractor agreeing to be on call for work orders.  They have plan sets, but typically they include just a title sheet and some standard plan sheets for workzone traffic control.  If you strip out the JOC contracts, quite often there is very little left in each monthly letting.

I remember reading a while ago that MoDOT has a "nut" of $300 million each year to work with and has to focus on the most heavily traveled subset of the state highway system--I think the top 3000 miles?

I remember that. Is this what you were talking about? http://www.modot.org/toughchoicesahead/documents/ToughChoicesAheadfactsheet.pdf

Also, thanks for letting me know what JOC stands for. I'll take those out next time I put lettings.
