Arizona DOT adopting a 'value engineering' philosophy for transportation projects

from AASHTO Journal

A new process called "value engineering" is being deployed by the Arizona Department of Transportation to help reduce project costs, shorten delivery times, or both. And a project that aims to replace the decking on Interstate 17 bridges at Willard Springs Road south of Flagstaff highlights the benefits of that philosophy. The Arizona DOT said that instead of replacing that decking over the course of two summers — with the project ending well into 2019 — the "value engineering" protocol is enabling the bridges to be completely replaced before the Thanksgiving holiday this year; all at no additional cost. The agency said that, once a project has been awarded, it sits down with its contractors to "systematically analyze" the project's plans and identify ways to deliver improvements safely, reliably and efficiently for the lowest overall cost possible. more
