Project Bundling Resources

This section of the Bundled Facilities website provides resources on Project Bundling. Project bundling is the practice of combining projects to accelerate delivery, reduce costs, and increase efficiency by combining multiple projects into a single contract. Project bundling streamlines design, contracting, and construction; creating value for the agency, contractors, and customers. The Federal Highway Administration promotes project bundling as part of its Everyday Counts initiative to save time, money, and resources to deliver more projects. This includes resources developed and managed by FHWA and others. They provide best practices and information useful to state and local transportation practitioners
