Develop an Integrated Asset Plan for Utilities within the Right of Way.
Air Quality, Environmental Process
Research Idea Scope
Develop an integrated asset management plan for utilities and right of way. Develop guidelines for concurrent construction and maintenance activities; develop guidelines for cost sharing of degradation of pavement life; develop quidelines for project coordination.
Urgency and Payoff
Pavement life, traffic capacity, and citizen perception are all negatively impacted by uncoordinated, constant, and poorly coordinated construction. Improving coordination will improve traffic flow, reduce maintenance costs, prolong pavement life and be appreciated by the driving public.
