Concept letter file names should consist of three elements: County, Design Number, and Version.(Example: Story 115 DRAFT.docx)
Contracted consultants should submit completed concept letters, with incorporated cost estimate data and distribution list, to the appropriate project review coordinator within the Bridges and Structures Bureau.
Distribution of concept letters will be the responsibility of the project review coordinator.
Concept Letter Templates
These files allow the user to develop the appropriate concept letter for each of the three project types. Use of the ‘Cost Estimates for Concepts’ and ‘Master List for Distribution of Concepts’ spreadsheets in conjunction with these templates is required.
Concept Distribution List
This spreadsheet allows the user to select the appropriate distribution list to include in the concept letter, sorted by district and project type. Remove any empty rows and non-applicable recipients, indicated by ** and developer comments, before submitting the concept letter.
Concept Cost Estimate Template
This spreadsheet allows the user to develop a cost estimate to include in the concept letter. Follow the outlined instructions for use and developer notes.
