We are civil servants dedicated to developing transportation designs of excellence. We find ways to improve designs and design processes that assure common sense and accountability while balancing these values: maintaining fiscal constraint, addressing the transportation purpose and need, reflecting the public's needs and interests, preserving or enhancing the environment, ensuring constructability, and improving the quality of life for Kentucky communities.
The Quality Assurance Branch consists of four programs:
- The Value Engineering Program provides a fresh look at existing plans with an aim towards affirming design objectives while removing unnecessary costs.
- The Constructability Program strives to improve coordination between design and construction staff while also providing additional personnel to review the feasibility of constructing design plans.
- The Post Construction Review Program solicits input from various stakeholders following project completion for implementation on future projects.
- The Lessons Learned Program collects and compiles relevant information from all three programs into the Lessons Learned Database which can be used to query and analyze the data.
