U.S. Department of Labor Conducting Wage Survey of New Hampshire Highway Construction Projects

MANCHESTER, NH – The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is conducting a statewide survey of New Hampshire highway construction projects that occurred between November 1, 2017 and October 31, 2018, to establish prevailing wage rates, as required under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. The data collection initiative is not limited to federally funded construction projects.

"Participation in the survey by contractors and other interested parties is crucial to the wage-setting process. Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates should reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place," said Wage and Hour Division Northeast Deputy Regional Administrator Maria Rosado. "Full participation will allow us to provide accurate prevailing wages and to create a complete wage determination which, in turn, will reduce the need for contractors to request additional classifications."

WHD is sending notification letters and data collection forms (WD-10s) to interested parties and contractors known to WHD. Data must be postmarked by September 6, 2019 to be included. To complete the survey electronically, visit

You do not need to receive a letter to answer the survey. If you would like to participate, or have questions regarding the survey process and forms, contact Regional Wage Specialist, Angel A. Aguero at 267-687-4059.
