Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has selected Bentley as its primary provider of software for surveying and engineering practices. Colorado has adopted MicroStation and its applications, replacing AutoCAD and three roadway design tools as its primary set of software solutions.

Bentley solutions were chosen as the result of a CDOT assessment of all its project development software. CDOT is already deploying MicroStation and InRoads on a series of 15 first-adopter projects, with full statewide deployment to the six regions beginning early this year.

The contracts include software, training, services, and the company's comprehensive technology and service subscription program, Bentley SELECT. The new engineering system is to include InRoads, InRoads Survey, InRoads Bridge, InRoads Storm & Sanitary software, and ProjectWise.
