Developing Improved Procedures for Business Accommodation on Transportation Construction Projects

Recognizing that transportation construction projects can adversely impact adjacent businesses, the Florida Department of Transportation sponsored this research project with two primary objectives: to determine the business accommodation needs and priorities for different types of businesses; and to develop strategies for improving business accommodation during transportation construction projects. Business managers of businesses located within highway construction work zones were interviewed concerning their experiences and needs. Focus group meetings of business representatives were conducted. Current planning, design and construction management processes were reviewed with regard to business accommodation issues. Strategies for improving business accommodation were developed. This research resulted in the development of a Business Survey Specification and Survey Document.
