The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has enacted the biennial Highway Plan, seeking to address the backlog of pavement and bridge needs while pursuing highway improvement projects that provide enhanced roadway safety, improved regional access, and the potential for increased economic opportunity to each geographic region of Kentucky. The Highway Plan consists of projects to address bridge and pavement needs, as well as critical roadway safety improvements, road widening, reconstruction, construction of new routes, and interchange improvements.
 
The Division of Professional Services has made available to the consultant industry a comprehensive record of projects endorsed within the Highway Plan. This database outlines scheduled project phases and funding information for each project recognized from FY20 through FY26, although sufficient funding is only available for a portion of those within the biennium. A core group of these projects may be solicited for consultant services to responsibly address infrastructure priorities across Kentucky and later shown on the Division of Professional Services list of Potential Projects for Advertisement. Please contact the appropriate District Office for additional information regarding any specific project.

NOTICE:  2020 Prequalification Criteria and Instructions Update
 
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has posted revisions to the Prequalification Criteria and Instructions document, which serves as the basis for determining minimum eligibility of firms within each service category. Each firm that desires to retain prequalifications or become prequalified with the Cabinet in any new service area must submit a full prequalification application prior to response to advertisement. These prequalifications are to be submitted electronically rather than via hard copy as in the past. The website to visit to submit prequalifications is https://apps.transportation.ky.gov/professionalservices.
 
Each firm must submit an updated Prequalification Application (TC 40-1 form) for review prior to the firm's annual renewal date. It is the sole responsibility of the firm to initiate a renewal of its prequalification with the Cabinet. If the firm makes no effort within thirty (30) days of its annual renewal date, then the firm is automatically removed from the Cabinet's listing of prequalified consultants. The request should include a Certification of Professional Liability Insurance, a Certificate of Workers Compensation, an Employment Insurance policy, and a Financial Statement. These documents shall be uploaded for review by Professional Services staff and retained for compliance.
 
Please review the links below for further details and information:
 
The Division of Professional Services anticipates this document will remain until December 2021 when the next updates become available prior to the 2022 full renewal cycle.
 
Note: These reference documents will also permanently be available under the Prequalification tab at the top of this website.
