Use of Long-Term Warranties for the Colorado Department of Transportation Pilot Projects

The Colorado construction communities, bonding agents, and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) have a variety of concerns regarding the use of long-term warranties on CDOT projects. Many of these concerns can only be answered by studying the two pilot projects containing long-term performance warranties recently constructed by CDOT. This report summarizes the use of long-term warranties in Europe and across the United States. In addition, the report reviews the relevant construction, specifications, project selection guidelines, and bonding of these pilot and control projects. The report represents the baseline information needed to guide the CDOT task force in the use of long-term warranties.
