The lack of effective utility coordination in rights-of way (ROW) can lead to increased costs and decreased efficiency for public-private partnership (P3) projects that involve many ROW users. Presenters in this webinar will offer an overview of TAC’s new Guide to Utility Coordination on Public-Private Partnership (P3) Projects, and discuss their experiences coordinating utilities on major P3 initiatives. The guide helps project stakeholders create efficient and consistent processes for utility relocations based on North American best practices, and describes the step-by-step coordination of utilities through the Planning, Request for Proposal (RFP) Documentation Preparation, In-Market Design, Project Implementation, and Post-Construction phases of P3 projects. This will be a unique opportunity to learn more from the perspectives of the Consultant, ROW Manager and Project Owner.
