Synopsis of Alternative Project Delivery, Procurement, and Contracting Methods for Highways

The United States highway system is the largest and most efficient road network in the world. It was built primarily through a traditional design-bid-build delivery approach so as to provide a balance between quality and cost. While the traditional project delivery approach has served the US public well, it has also received criticisms stemming from long delivery times, excessive cost growth, and litigious relationships. Faced with increasing public demand and reduced staff numbers, federal, state, and local agencies are seeking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public-sector project delivery.

Alternative Project Delivery, Procurement, and Contracting Methods for Highways provides a comprehensive and objective presentation of these methods. A special publication of the Construction Research Council (CRC) of ASCE's Construction Institute (CI), this book provides vital information on design-build, construction management at risk, performance-based road maintenance contracts, best-value procurement, quality-based contractor qualification, warranty contracting, and incentive/disincentive contracting. It is essential reading for the road construction industry.
