Buy America - Title 23 CFR 635.410

"Buy America" is a Federal Law that requires all steel and iron used on Federal Aid projects to be of domestic origin and manufacture, including any coatings. This page is set up to house supplementary information to section 106.09 DOMESTIC MATERIALS in The Montana Book of Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction. Additional information will be posted to this page so please return periodically for updates.

In order to assist Contractors in submitting the required documentation, MDT has developed two versions of a report that can be issued at the beginning of any project containing steel or iron items. The two versions are linked below. Please indicate your preference or provide any comments to , State Materials Engineer.

Additional information can be found on the FHWA Buy America Q&A web page.
