Post Construction Review Program
The Post Construction Review (PCR) Program is a way for designers and construction staff to learn from actual project experiences.  Following the completion of a highway or bridge project, the Quality Assurance Branch (QAB) hosts a meeting to discuss these experiences.  Participants include the professionals that were involved in the design and construction: KYTC staff, design consultant, and construction contractor.
Project Selection
The PCR Coordinator works closely with each district to select projects that merit a review.  Generally, the PCR Program targets projects that have been open to traffic for a year and have construction costs greater than $1 million.  QAB’s goal is to review between two and four projects per year for every district.
Gathering Information
QAB facilitates the discussion about issues that arose, solutions that were implemented, and recommendations that could lead to improvements on future projects.  This information is compiled and shared back with participants in a document called a Fact Sheet.  In addition, the collection of data from all reviews is available in a spreadsheet to use for trend analysis and overall learning.
Elevated Issues 
During a PCR, sometimes an issue is identified as needing additional attention.  QAB flags them with a title of an Elevated Issue (EI.)  An EI may warrant further consideration for potential policy or standard changes.  It may also be a lesson learned that is worthy of sharing in the Quality Matters Newsletter.
