What is Expediting Project Delivery?

Expediting Project Delivery (C19) is a second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Capacity solution for accelerating planning and environmental review of transportation projects. This product identifies 24 strategies for addressing or avoiding 16 common constraints to expedite project delivery. It was developed by TRB and explained in their report Expedited Planning and Environmental Review of Highway Projects.

The 24 strategies are grouped into six expediting themes:

  • Improve public involvement and support;
  • Improve resource agency involvement and collaboration;
  • Demonstrate real commitment to the project;
  • Improve internal communication and coordination;
  • Streamline decision making; and
  • Integrate across all phases of project delivery.

To determine which strategies would benefit your program, review the Self-Assessment Workbook to learn how to conduct your own assessment.

What are the benefits?

The Expediting Project Delivery strategies represent innovative approaches to improve transportation decision making that result in better projects and environmental outcomes. Applying these proven strategies saves time by allowing agencies to anticipate and reduce project delays.
