T STANDS FOR TUTOR : ENGINEERS AND BUILDERS ON T-REX LEARN LESSONS ABOUT HOW TO COORDINATE A MEGAPROJECT

This article details the ongoing construction of the T-REX project in Denver, Colorado. Currently the largest multimodal project in the U.S., it includes improvements along 17 miles of interstate highway as well as the addition of 19 miles of new light rail transit. The primary objectives of T-REX are to improve travel time, reduce congestion, and enhance safety, while minimizing disruption to residents, commuters, and businesses. Some of the more significant challenges the project has faced include maintaining public awareness of the project’s progress, adhering to budgetary and schedule constraints, constructing 60 new or expanded bridges and tunnels, incorporating mass transit into an area already crowded with traditional traffic, and repairing a long-standing problem of highway drainage. A final section outlines some lessons learned regarding project goals, co-location of owner and contractor teams, executive level support to the partnering process, risk analysis, audit oversight, and public information programs.
