Utility Conflict Impacts During Highway Construction

The objectives of this research are to (1) develop a way to identify and quantify the impact of utility conflicts during construction; (2) prepare a catalog of best practices for managing utility conflicts during the project delivery process, primarily during the construction phase; (3) identify procedure(s) and tools for utility inspections during adjustments and/or installation (e.g., in-place inspections and location data capturing in ways that maximize real-time data collection and processing); (4) evaluate the implementation and management of tools such as Utility Impact Analysis (UIA), Utility Conflict Management (UCM), and Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE); (5) develop a list of functional requirements for future development of a decision support tool; and (6) develop training materials.
