Adapting Construction Staking and Inspection to Modern Technology

The main goal of this research project is to develop written procedures for the use of modern technologies (such as global positioning system (GPS), CADD models, and civil information models) in construction staking of highway projects in the State of Illinois for inclusion in Illinois Department of Transportation's (IDOT’s) Construction Manual, which would enable the employment of these technologies in Illinois, and in turn offer major opportunities for quality improvements, cost savings, and expediting project delivery.
