Qualified product list (QPL)

A database of over 1,300 construction materials that have been pre-approved for use in state highway construction.

Do not submit application and money prior to contacting the QPL Engineer.

The proprietary Wall Design Review process is temporarily closed to new applications.

Search the QPL by selecting a manufacturer or a standard specification

The Qualified Products List is compiled by Washington State Department of Transportation's (WSDOT) Materials Laboratory. Where there is a conflict between the QPL and the contract provisions, the contract provisions shall take precedence over the QPL. WSDOT is not responsible for errors or omissions in the QPL.

In accordance with WSDOT Standard Specifications for Road, Bridge and Municipal Construction Section 1-06.1(1), this website is considered to be the current QPL.

Products that do not perform or found to be noncompliant with WSDOT specifications may be removed at any time from the QPL. These products will not be re-entered into the QPL or approved for use in the State of Washington until such time that adherence to the specifications can be verified and the products have undergone satisfactory performance evaluation.

Slow down on ice and snow.

It's easier to skid or lose control traveling at higher speeds. Give yourself more time to stop.

Carry chains, practice installing them.

Winter conditions could mean chains are required on your route. Practice putting them on your vehicle ahead of time.

Pack your winter car kit.

Carry extra supplies like warm clothing, ice scraper and brush, jumper cables and other emergency items.
