Shortening Project Delivery Toolkit

Shortening Project Delivery Toolkit

It's a commonly held perception that it takes an average of 13 years to deliver a major highway project from planning through completion. This perception is based partly on the experiences of State DOTs and FHWA, and partly on data collected on projects that require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). FHWA believes that using innovative approaches will improve project delivery times.

The toolkit will present these approaches for addressing what we've identified as a number of frequently-cited problem areas. In addition to presenting these options, FHWA is prepared to play an active leadership role in helping the people who actually deliver projects - states, MPOs, contractors - understand and accept the new practices and new technologies. Content is currently being developed for this page and more information will be added throughout the summer.
