Best Practices for Project Construction Streamlining

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  09/27/2005


Recent initiatives at the state and federal level have focused attention on possible ways of streamlining or expediting the project delivery process. While some of these efforts have focused on methods and practices to speed planning and pre-construction activities, the purpose of this investigation was to examine means of speeding the roadway and highway construction cycle. Highway construction time has very real costs to all parties involved in the process; highway departments, contractors, and most especially the public whose tax dollars and time is spent waiting for projects to be completed. Recognizing this, the Local Road Research Board's (LRRB) Research Implementation Committee (RIC) began this investigation to explore current activities, techniques and materials whose use reduces construction time, and to determine the extent of their use by city and county engineers in Minnesota.
