Montana Department of Transportation Transitions to Autodesk Infrastructure Design Solutions Partnering with U.S. CAD for Deployment and Implementation

Adopting Autodesk’s Best-in-class Solutions Paired with U.S. CAD’s Expert Guidance for Professional Services is a Key Part of State’s Digital Delivery Initiative

IRVINE, Calif. – U.S. CAD, a leading AEC technology and consulting firm, and Autodesk Platinum Partner, announced it will provide deployment and implementation services as part of the Montana Department of Transportation’s (MDT) move to Autodesk AEC Collection® for its employees focused on highway and bridge design. The decision is part of MDT’s forward-thinking Digital Delivery Initiative and ongoing mission to provide excellence in transportation to the traveling public.

News Facts

  • MDT is responsible for numerous programs related to the construction, maintenance, and monitoring of Montana’s nearly 25,000 lane miles of highways, roads, and bridges.
  • As a result, designing, repairing, and modernizing its transportation infrastructure requires best-in-class software solutions developed by Autodesk and expert implementation, project management, and deployment guidance by U.S. CAD, a trusted partner to the infrastructure industry and government agencies since 1999.
  • The contracts were awarded by RFP selection process to U.S. CAD’s government technology partner, DLT Solutions, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tech Data. U.S. CAD serves as a subcontractor to DLT on the initiative, helping MDT achieve its goals and objectives by delivering implementation and training plans for the use of Autodesk AEC Collection, a BIM and CAD software suite, that includes market-leading infrastructure design software solutions; AutoCAD®, Civil 3D®, InfraWorks®, Navisworks®, and Revit®.
  • U.S. CAD has gained the trust of transportation agencies across the country that have transitioned to the Autodesk platform by delivering software solutions and professional services that achieve measurable results for agencies. 
  • MDT plans to use Autodesk infrastructure solutions for state-wide, transportation-related 3D design and modeling, including conceptual design, visualization, drainage and bridge design and analysis, survey data management processing, geotechnical, and right-of-way mapping. With Autodesk’s infrastructure solutions, project teams and stakeholders will achieve streamlined collaboration leading to more efficient project outcomes.
  • By making the move to Autodesk solutions with U.S. CAD’s support, MDT can best align with its Digital Delivery Initiative to improve project delivery across the planning, designing, constructing, and overall ecosystem management to improve roadway design quality and safety, reduce project costs and risks, and increase efficiency and productivity.
