Tramontozzi Innovative Conference 16MAR10 A top priority for MassDOT is delivering construction projects safely, quickly, and efficiently to reopen roads and bridges faster and reduce inconvenience for drivers and residents. That means exploring all new, innovative ways to streamline project delivery.

And this week, MassDOT joined the Federal Highway Administration, Construction Industries of Massachusetts and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts for a productive “Innovative Contracting Workshop” with those priorities in mind.  

MassDOT, federal, and industry experts shared information on the feasibility, advantages and challenges of innovative project delivery and contracting and accelerated construction practices.

State experts heard constructive comments on current practices and developed follow-up plans to continue improving innovative project delivery. 

MassDOT is already delivering more projects than ever on time and on budget.  Under Governor Patrick's leadership, MassDOT has reduced the time for construction contract advertisement to construction start from 218 days in 2008 to 124 days in 2009.  Innovative construction techniques such as design-build and precast construction are delivering projects quicker and with less disruption to the community.  Visit MassDOT on the web to learn more.
