Constructability Review

Recognizing that constructability challenges with highway construction projects are obstacles to the Cabinet’s goals, this section of the Quality Assurance Branch works in coordination with Design’s Project Managers to intercept and resolve constructability issues prior to letting.  As appropriate, constructability staff are involved throughout the design phase of each project.  Full constructability review meetings are led when warranted.​ A sample Constructability Review can be found here.

Constructability Database:

Comments from the Constructability Reviews are stored in the Constructability Database under the following categories:​
