State transportation agencies recognize the need for contract documents that will ensure rational bids and minimize problems during construction of facilities. A significant aspect of developing high-quality contract documents is to incorporate constructibility reviews into project planning and design. Before state transportation agency management can address constructibility implementation, critical issues affecting implementation must be understood. A survey was conducted to capture specific constructibility issues from the perspective of agencies, design firms, and construction contractors. These issues are categorized into those relevant to project execution processes, project planning and technical design documents, and project resources. Analysis and interpretation of the issues within these three categories suggest eleven paradigm shifts that state transportation agency management must address to successfully implement a constructibility program.
