What's New

NEW LAW AFFECTING BIDDER QUALIFICATIONS

The Iowa Legislature adopted and Governor Branstad signed into law Senate File 438 on April 13, 2017. The bill was effective for any public improvement contract entered into on or after that date. See the attached document for detailed information, the link to the actual bill, and the proposed changes to the SUDAS Specifications.

SUDAS Manuals

PLEASE remember the SUDAS program consists of two manuals - the Design Manual and the Standard Specifications. If you have both manuals in your office, please make sure you carefully read anything we mail to you. The binders for the two manuals look very similar or might be the same (depending on when you purchased your SUDAS Standard Specifications). This does not mean it's the same manual!!! If you have questions about your manuals, please compare the contents of the manual to this website or call us for clarification.

Temporary Traffic Control

SUDAS staff developed an updated Temporary Traffic Control Handbook through an Iowa Highway Reserach Board project. One copy of the handbook was distributed to each county office and each city office with a population over 1,000 people. If you would like to request additional copies, please complete this form. Click here for an electronic version of the handbook. The handbook is also used in Iowa LTAP trainings.

SUDAS mail lists

If you own copies of the SUDAS manuals, please make sure to let us know when your address or point of contact might change. Since we issue annual revisions for free to current manual holders, we rely on you to let us know when something changes.
