As road rights-of-way have become more crowded and complex, the lack of effective utility coordination can quickly lead to increased costs and decreased efficiency. Guide to Utility Coordination on Public-Private Partnership (P3) Projects aims to improve utility coordination on P3 projects by helping project stakeholders create efficient and consistent processes for utility relocations. Public and private agencies with an existing coordination process can use the guide to ensure quality and consistency. For agencies without an existing process, it offers a template that they can customize.
The guide describes the step-by-step coordination of utilities through the five phases of Planning, Request for Proposal (RFP) Documentation Preparation, In-Market Design, Project Implementation, and Post-Construction. An accompanying flow chart summarizes the five phases presented in the guide.
