Cost Estimation System

AASHTOWare Project Cost Estimation graphicThe New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) uses the AASHTOWare Project Cost Estimation System (CES) software module for preparing construction cost estimates. Use of CES produces 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.

In Summer 2017, NJDOT anticipates to phase out CES and replace it with AASHTOWare Project Estimation.

The current 2001 Pay Item List (pdf 310k) and new 2007 Pay Item List (pdf 284k) (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 AASHTOWare Project CES software module.

The CES module can be accessed remotely. For questions regarding access credentials, contact the AASHTOWare Project team.

Bid Price Report

The Bid Price 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.

Asphalt Cement and Fuel Price Index

The Asphalt Cement and Fuel Price Index is computed each month from industry sources (beginning 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).
