Establishing a KYTC Lessons Learned Database

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) delivers projects that vary widely in terms of scope and timeline. These range from megaprojects (e.g., Louisville Bridges) and multi-year efforts (e.g., Bridging Kentucky, Interstate 69) to emergency repairs (e.g., Brent Spence Bridge fire) and smaller projects geared toward improving safety (e.g., HSIP). Every project generates multiple learning experiences that inform how engineers address ongoing and future projects as well as agency practices. However, often these experiences are translated into tacit knowledge or only informally communicated between staff. Such exchanges are valuable, but they do not create a permanent record that employees — including future hires — can consult. As staff turns over, eventually lessons learned are lost. This project will provide accurate, sustainable, and user-friendly procedures for documenting lessons learned once projects conclude; and implement a process for maintaining a database of best practices for different project types.
