The new Material Source Approval Process has changed as of 2009. The old process was based on PROJECTS. The new process is based on LOCATIONS. The purpose of the new process is to streamline the review process, in response to feedback from stakeholders involved in the process.
1) Check the NDDOT Material Source Certificate of Approval Website
to see if the location you intend to use has been issued a Certificate of Approval (COA). If a COA has been issued, the Applicant shall print and submit the COA to the Project Engineer. The Project Engineer will make it part of the project record. Material Source Locations that are included in the plans or bidders proposal do not need to be reprinted at the time of construction. All conditions listed on a COA must be followed.
2) If the location has not been approved, submit SFN 58466: NDDOT Material Source Approval Request Form
, along with a map to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are any issues with a location that requires further coordination with State or Federal Agencies, the NDDOT Environmental and Transportation Services Division staff will contact the applicant. After the source has been approved, a COA will be published on the NDDOT Material Source Certificate of Approval Website
. The Applicant shall print and submit the COA to the Project Engineer. The Project Engineer will make it part of the Project Record.
