Construction Cost Estimation

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) uses Cost Estimation System (CES) software for preparing construction cost estimates to produce more accurate and consistent estimates earlier in the engineering cycle.

CES provides a full range of capabilities from concept to the final engineer’s estimate. As a result, estimators can now produce the final estimate by moving smoothly from long range to detailed information.

The current 2001 Pay Item List (pdf 310k) and new 2007 Pay Item List (pdf 272k) (English units only) are available for use in preparing Plans, Specifications, and Engineer's Estimates using either the English 2001 or English 2007 Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction in the Trns*port software suite.

The CES module can be accessed remotely. For questions regarding access credentials, contact the Trns•port team.

Bid Price Report

This report contains Average Weighted prices for all Pay Items used in construction contracts let in the past year. It is used to develop Final Engineer's Construction Estimates and Proposals. Hard copies of it are issued annually and are available at the Engineering Documents Unit on the first floor of the NJDOT E&O Building, (609) 530-5587. Orders can also be place with the EDU website.

Asphalt Cement & Fuel Price Index

The Asphalt Cement & Fuel Price Index is computed each month from industry sources (starting August 1990). It is used in preparation of the Asphalt and Fuel Price adjustments, which are entered into the Final Engineer's Construction Estimates.

The Asphalt and Fuel Price Adjustments for estimating purposes can be calculated with the Fuel and Asphalt Price Adjustment Spreadsheet (xls 65k).
