Construction Audit Tracking System

Find instructions on using our construction and inspection audit system that will be used by WSDOT for all design build projects and other construction, testing and inspection processes.

The Construction Audit Tracking System (CATS) provides a communications process that allows WSDOT and contractors to resolve non-compliance issues found during construction inspections. This system is a new need to WSDOT and does not replace any existing computer systems at the agency.

System instructions

Use these instructions to assist you with CATS:

Traction tires are a special type of tire

manufactured with at least 1/8 of an inch tread. Traction tires are usually marked with a mountain/snowflake symbol, the letters M+S or “All Season.”

Carry chains, practice before leaving

Requiring chains keeps traffic moving during storms rather than closing a pass or roadway.

Prep your car. Fill up your gas tank,

pack jumper cables, ice scraper, warm clothing, snacks and water.
