Evaluating the Construction Cost and Schedule Impacts of SCDOT's Traffic Control Restrictions

The overarching goal of this project is to provide technical guidance ot SCDOT in effectively specifying lane closure restrictions on their construction projects. Effective specification of lane closure restrictions needs to be based on a thorough understanding of the trade-offs between the total project cost, schedule, and user costs. The following objectives are identified: (1) synthesize current state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in evaluating the impacts of traffic control measures on construction cost, schedule, and user costs; (2) develop and demonstrate an approach for estimating construction cost, schedule, and user cost implications for a specified lane-closure restriction strategy; (3) evaluate the impact of current and previous lane-closure restriction policies on project cost and schedule objectives for different types of SCDOT projects; and (4) develop a user-friendly computational tool that will assist SCDOT’s construction engineers in quickly evaluating the construction cost, schedule, and user cost implications of various lane closure restriction considerations based on a given set of project characteristics.
