The New Mexico Department of
(NMDOT) is the latest
state DOT in the U.S
.to expand their use of Autodesk software to
include Autodesk Building Information
(BIM) solutions for road and highway design projects statewide.

are looking forward to implementing the Autodesk solutions,” said Alvin
Dominguez, P.E., NMDOT Cabinet Secretary.  “The New Mexico Department of
Transportation expects to pay for the software within two years of full
implementation through cost savings realized in the reduction of change
orders.  The use of 3D modeling capabilities will improve our public input
on projects promoting positive customer relations and needed transparency
throughout our project development process.”

“New Mexico’s decision to
standardize on Autodesk solutions adds them to a growing list of major U.S.
departments of transportation, such as Caltrans, that have made the move to
Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions,“ said Lisa Campbell, Autodesk vice
president of engineering and infrastructure. “We’re seeing rapidly expanding
interest within the transportation community for the Autodesk BIM for
infrastructure solutions, which help designers and civil engineers in both
consulting firms and government agencies plan, design, build and manage more sustainable

Recently NMDOT used Autodesk
Infrastructure Modeler
, a solution that helps engineers and planning
professionals create, evaluate, and communicate visually rich infrastructure
proposals for more informed decision-making, to generate 3D visualizations for
the Cambray Bridge
replacement and I-10 roadway rehabilitation projects
