(a) Public notice of a project shall be given by publication once a week for at least
two consecutive weeks or once a week for more than two consecutive weeks if the longer
period of advertising is deemed necessary by the department, as follows:
(1) In a newspaper of general circulation published in the county in which the project
is located, or if located in more than one county, in such a newspaper in a county
in which a major portion of the work is to be done.
(b) The department may publish the notice to bidders for a project in additional trade
papers or newspapers of general circulation that it deems advisable.
(c)(1) In the case of the Department of Transportation, instead of the public notice described in subdivision (a), the public notice requirement
of this section may instead be met by publishing the public notice electronically on that department's Internet Web site.
(2) If the department exercises its authority under paragraph (1), the department
shall also publish information regarding notices listed on the department's Internet
Web site in trade papers, newspapers, or magazines, as appropriate in order to ensure
all communities have access to the public notice, including those publications whose
primary audience consists of underrepresented groups, including, but not limited to,
women, minorities, LGBT, and disabled veterans, pursuant to the frequency requirements
specified in subdivision (a).
