Cost Estimating

General:

The purpose of the Bridge Development Report is to select the most appropriate structure type for the site

under consideration. One of the most important considerations is to select the most cost efficient bridge

to fit the unique circumstances at the site. The purpose of the procedure established in this chapter is to

bring uniformity to the cost estimating portion of the decision making process. For information purposes

selected project cost data is provided in the appendix.

The cost estimating procedure supplied herein should be used for all bridge structures with the exception

of the structure types stated below. This process is not suitable for cost estimating structure types without

repeatable bid history including the following bridge types: movable; cable stayed; cast-in-place on form

travelers; arches and tunnels. These very unique structures should be cost estimated by the use of

fundamental process of developing cost based on labor, materials, equipment and construction time.

This concept for cost estimating is a three-step process. The first step is to utilize the average unit

material costs provided herein to develop a cost estimate based on the completed preliminary design. The

second step is to adjust the total bridge cost for the unique site conditions by use of the site adjustment

factors. The third and final step is to review the computed total bridge cost on a cost per square foot basis

and compare this cost against the historical cost range for similar structure types. This three-step process

should produce a reasonably accurate cost estimate for structure type selection. However, if a site has a

set of odd circumstances which will affect the bridge cost be sure to account for these unique site

conditions in the estimate. If the estimated cost is outside the cost range in step three, documented

reasons should be provided for the variance in cost.

The applicability of this three-step process is explained in the general section. The process stated below is

developed for estimating the bridge cost after the completion of the preliminary design which includes

member selection, member size and member reinforcing. This process will develop costs for the bridge

superstructure and substructure from beginning to end bridge. Costs for all other items including but not

limited to the following are excluded from the costs provided in this chapter: mobilization, operation costs

for existing bridge(s); removal of existing bridge or bridge fenders; lighting; walls; deck drainage

systems; embankment; fenders; approach slabs; maintenance of traffic; load tests; bank stabilization.

The final step is a confirmation of the cost estimate by comparison with historic bridge cost based on a cost

per square foot. These total cost numbers are calculated exclusively for the bridge cost as defined in the

General Section of this chapter. Price computed by Steps 1 and 2 should be generally within the range of

cost as supplied herein. If the cost falls outside the provided range, good justification should be provided.
