Each year, thousands of utilities are installed within the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) right-of-way (ROW). This proliferation of utilities makes it increasingly difficult for TxDOT to manage its own transportation system effectively and allow for more utilities. Research Project 0-2110 developed a prototype geographic information system (GIS)-based platform for the inventory of utilities located within the TxDOT ROW. As part of the project, the researchers compiled and reviewed existing sources of utility data at TxDOT, developed a prototype GIS-based utility inventory model, developed a prototype Internet-based data entry procedure to capture notice of proposed installation (NOPI) data, and provided recommendations for implementing and expanding the prototypes. Implementation Projects 5-1220-01 and 5-2110-03 are the result of TxDOT's decision to implement the findings of research Project 0-2110. Project 5-2110-01 focuses on the implementation of the Internet-based utility installation notice review process (also known as utility permitting process). This report is the first-year report for Project 5-2110-03. It summarizes the system analysis, design, and development phases and outlines the activities to be conducted during the second year.
