A Guidebook for Project Development

For Kentucky’s Department of Highways, project development encompasses all work activities needed to move a transportation project from concept and project initiation to construction letting. Having recourse to validated project development practices is critical for helping project managers negotiate the wide‐ranging tasks and processes leading up to project implementation and delivery. For a project manager to be successful, they must possess a holistic understanding of how the complex interplay of engineering, environmental, and economic issues affect different facets of project development. Although KYTC has a long track record of executing complex transportation projects, doing so is becoming increasingly challenging due to staff attrition and the loss of institutional knowledge. Today, entry‐ and mid‐level project managers have more project development responsibilities than ever but lack a dependable source of guidance for overseeing projects from development through completion.
