Application of Buy America in CA

The California Division of FHWA has provided additional information on the application of Buy America in California. In the letter addressed to the Director of Caltrans, the following topics were addressed:

  • Application of Buy America and MAP-21
  • Transition Plan
  • Items subject to Buy America
  • Exemptions from Buy America
  • Minimal Amounts of Foreign Iron and Steel

I recommend reviewing the FHWA letter as it addresses the topics and questions brought up in previous posts (Buy America Requirements – ReiterationBuy America FAQs & Resources, Utilities & Buy America, Buy America Transition Period).
