Guidelines to Enhance the Constructability of Diverse, Modern, and Unconventional Interchanges and Intersections

The purpose of this research is to assist the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Traffic Management Unit (TMU) and the Value Management Office (VMO) in assessing issues regarding the construction of Diverse, Modern, and Unconventional Intersections and Interchanges (DMUII). Assessing the constructability of these emerging DMUII is a new area of study that has not yet been previously explored. Therefore, this research will identify factors affecting construction projects prior to construction and develop a schedule and cost payout model (based on prior NCDOT projects) that identifies problems related to expenditure, schedule, and obstruction of traffic during construction. At the end of the project guidelines, checklists, and knowledge will be generated to enhance NCDOT constructability practices for DMUII. Approaches and innovations will be defined and advantages and disadvantages will be clearly identified.
