Project Management Plans to Support Successful Delivery of Accelerated Bridge Construction Projects

Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) methods are a way to fast-track the construction of bridges, significantly reducing the amount of time spent on site and minimizing traffic disruptions. These projects require a great deal of planning and collaboration among project team members due to their complex nature. The Project Management Plans (PMP) submitted define how this is carried out. While there is guidance for how to complete these PMPs for the major projects that they are required on, the specifics of developing a PMP for an ABC project are not addressed in the guidance provided by the Federal Highway Administration or in the SHRP 2 R10 report. Researchers on this project will analyze archival data, current practices, and existing literature to develop a framework for PMPs to be used on ABC projects. Researchers will then meet with DOT and industry professionals to validate the framework. The resulting fine-tuned framework will be a tool for project teams to develop their PMPs for ABC projects.
