NOTE: Firms or individuals determined to be qualified for these services will now be prequalified for a period of three (3) years and may be contacted periodically to propose for work on Department projects for which they are prequalified. As these services are needed, GDOT will solicit for this work and only qualified contractors may submit bids for services in approved areas. It is the responsibility of the firm or individual to keep prequalification status current. Firms or individuals who allow their prequalification to expire will be removed from the prequalification listing(s). Firms or individuals must re-apply by following the instructions and guidelines above at least sixty (60) days prior to expiration or by the application submission deadline the quarter before expiration. GDOT does not send out notifications of prequalification expiration or alerts when information is removed from the listing(s).
Georgia DOT must acquire land to improve its transportation system. The brochure listed below explains why your property may be needed, what your rights are as a property owner and provides answers to some of the questions that will come to mind if your property is needed for a transportation facility.
Georgia DOT is cautioning political candidates and campaigns not to place signs on rights of way. Signs that are found on rights of way will be removed by Georgia DOT maintenance crews.
