Price Adjustments

Due to the uncertainty of liquid asphalt, Portland cement, diesel fuel, gasoline, structural steel, and reinforcing steel prices, and in accordance with the requirements of M.G.L. c. 30, sec. 38A, MassDOT Highway Division uses special provisions on selected projects to make contract adjustments to account for the prices in effect at the time the work is performed.

Municipalities are required to include price adjustment clauses for diesel fuel, gasoline, liquid asphalt, Portland cement concrete, structural steel and reinforcing steel in the bid documents of all construction contracts funded by the Chapter 90 Program. For more information please refer to the Price Adjustment Requirements for Cities and Towns.
