Identification of Utility Conflicts and Solutions: Pilot Implementation of the SHRP 2 R15B Products at the Maryland State Highway Administration

Strategic Highway Research Program Research 2 (SHRP 2) Project R15B, Identification of Utility Conflicts and Solutions, took place from March 2009 to July 2011 and resulted in three products: Product 1 (stand-alone utility conflict matrix [UCM]), Product 2 (utility conflict data model and database), and Product 3 (one-day UCM training course). In December 2011, the SHRP 2 Oversight Committee authorized a follow-on project to pilot the implementation of the SHRP 2 R15B tools. The follow-on project was SHRP 2 R15C “Pilot Application of Products for the Identification of Utility Conflicts and Solutions.” Its objective was to work with a state department of transportation on the implementation of the stand-alone UCM and the one-day UCM training course, as well as an introduction to the utility conflict data model and database. The pilot implementation took place in Maryland from September 2012 to March 2014. The UCM pilot implementation in Maryland was a success, and the UCM approach that was piloted and updated as part of the SHRP 2 R15C project could be replicated throughout the country.
