1 1 Transportation Operations Group Utility Research at TxDOT Cesar Quiroga, TTI AASHTO ROW & Utilities Subcommittee Conference Austin, TX, May 15-19, 2005

2 2 Transportation Operations Group Utility Research Plan at TxDOT Strategies to manage and integrate utility data Procedures to optimize utility placement within ROW Strategies to reduce utility relocation delays

3 3 Transportation Operations Group Utility Research Plan at TxDOT Strategies to manage and integrate utility data Improve utility inventory practices Automate utility data submittals Improve utility conflict information management Procedures to optimize utility placement within ROW Planning tools to determine optimum utility placement Strategies to reduce utility relocation delays Innovative contracting practices Optimize utility reimbursement practices

4 4 Transportation Operations Group Research Projects No.Description GIS Utility Inventory Platform Feasibility of Utility Corridors in TxDOT ROW Technology to Identify Non-Metallic Pipelines GIS-Based Inventory of Utilities Internet-Based Utility Permitting Process Delays in ROW Acquisition and Utility Relocation Combined Utility Relocation/Highway Construction Standardization of Utility Specifications and Unit Costs Utility Data Integration in Project Development Process CompletedActiveFY 06 – pending RMC approval

5 5 Transportation Operations Group GIS-Based Inventory of Utilities Project PD: Jesse Cooper, TxDOT Right of Way Division RS: Cesar Quiroga, TTI

6 6 Transportation Operations Group Why is Research Important? Before Relocation: Quality of SUE deliverables Utility conflict identification and resolution During Relocation: Quality of inspection Post-Relocation: Quality and completeness of as-builts

7 7 Transportation Operations Group Objectives Update inventory data model Test updated model using sample project Katy Freeway Reconstruction Project Develop GIS database of relocated utilities Develop positional accuracy and deliverable requirements for utility data submittals

14 14 Transportation Operations Group Internet-Based Utility Permitting Process Project PD: Joe Graff, TxDOT Maintenance Division RS: Cesar Quiroga, TTI

15 15 Transportation Operations Group Why is Research Important? 10,000+ utility permits per year Paper and labor intensive Incomplete documentation Scaled schematic 20% ROW line or centerline depiction 21% Control section and mile point data 10% Reference marker and offset data 5% Variability in drawing standards Utility maps not up-to-date Institutional memory at TxDOT

16 16 Transportation Operations Group System Implementation Oracle database Interactive ArcSDE/ArcIMS-based mapping Secure 128-bit SSL encryption PDF file conversion Utility company user management TxDOT user management

21 21 Transportation Operations Group Current Activities Testing and debugging Interactive online help system System management and reporting System documentation Training materials

22 22 Transportation Operations Group Standardization of Utility Specifications and Unit Costs Project PD: Jeff Masek, CCA, Houston District RS: Cesar Quiroga, TTI

23 23 Transportation Operations Group Why is Research Important? Utility Accommodation Rules (UAR) Cover basic requirements No standard specs for utility installations Many special specs and provisions Utility relocation costs Utility relocation cost estimates No standardized cost data submittal Difficult to assess validity of cost data

24 24 Transportation Operations Group Objectives Review specifications for utility installations Review utility relocation cost documentation Develop recommendations for specifications and changes to the UAR Develop methodology for estimating costs
