The purpose of this virtual peer exchange is to encourage tribes and local public agencies (LPAs) to take advantage of efficiencies created by project bundling. With the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), project bundling becomes even more relevant and important. The BIL specifically mentions project bundling and bridge bundling as alternative contracting methods for enhanced program delivery and encourages agencies to establish clear procedures for these methods so the known benefits might be more consistently realized.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) would like to help tribes and LPAs make bundling a routine process for saving time, money, and resources, especially as additional funds from the BIL are rolled out.

If you are part of a tribe or LPA and work in planning/programming, design, construction, or asset management, don’t miss this worthwhile event! Register here.
