Modernizing Road Construction Plans and Documentation

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  09/14/2016


Plans and specifications have a variety of information. Current construction documents reflect the needs of close to 20 years ago and it can be hard to visualize plans in 3D with current standard submittals. Constructability is hard to understand because the current process is lagging behind available technology. This research will investigate what is really needed on construction plans, what does the contractor really need to build, what is proposed? It will also identify the necessary requirements to provide for construction plans. The requirements need to change and may be a sliding scale based on the project being constructed. What goes in a plan set for a total reconstruction might look different than what goes in the set or is required for a total reconstruction.
