Utility Relocations – Challenges and Proposed Solutions

FTA is releasing a resource on Utility Relocation Challenges and Proposed Solutions.  Utility relocations are often critical risks on transit projects for both cost and schedule.  Within highly developed alignments, utility relocation can become the primary driver of project success.  Handling this risk within the real-world of project constraints is daunting, even for those experienced in project management, design, and construction.  This Utility Relocation White Paper is based on six study projects and offers practical advice for managing the data acquisition, data management, stakeholder partnering, design documents, project contracting, and tools for project data management when dealing with utility relocations.
