Bridge Contractor Outreach

The Bridge Contractors/Caltrans Liaison Committee was created to establish a dialogue between the Division of Engineering Services and the Bridge Contracting community on structure issues. The goal is to provide information sharing and collaboratively work together on action items as agreed to by the group. Meetings will be held between the semi-annual meetings to work on action items as needed.
