Best Practices Guidebook for Optimal Construction Inspection

In the current era of increasingly scarce highway construction funds, state departments of transportation (DOTs) are struggling to provide effective stewardship of assets and to do more with less. One area of increasing concern is how DOTs are ensuring adequate construction inspection on a growing number of projects with shrinking construction inspection staff (whether in-house, outsourced, or both). The objective of this research is to develop a Best Practices Guidebook for DOTs to produce quality transportation infrastructure using efficient and effective construction engineering inspection processes.
