Advanced Project Bundling: Making the Business Case
November 18, 2020, 2:00-3:30pm ET Register
Advanced project bundling consists of planning and awarding similar projects to leverage all economies of scale throughout project delivery, while also achieving important program goals.
Project bundling isn’t new, so why are the techniques promoted in Every Day Counts round five referred to as “advanced”? This webinar series will detail more effective methods collected from national best practices. Agencies that systematically implement this more advanced approach will optimize resources, save delivery time, and address system performance goals while keeping crucial transportation assets in good repair.
FHWA WILL HOST A SERIES OF PROJECT BUNDLING WEBINARS EVERY THIRD WEDNESDAY BEGINNING IN SEPTEMBER 2020
