State departments of transportation spend over $6 billion each year on design and environmental consulting services, making the state DOT market one of the biggest in the AEC industry. Like many markets, the state DOT market was hard-hit by the Great Recession, and constrained budgets on the state and federal level along with an outmoded method of financing transportation projects—the gasoline tax—have posed challenges to firms working in the state DOT market in recent years. The passage of the FAST Act in late 2015, a five-year, $305 billion funding bill, has restored some stability to the market. But many buyers are still looking for a longer-term funding solution that only Congress can provide.
