Project Delivery Method Issues of Different Transportation Modes: One Size Does Not Fit All

Most previous project delivery method research has been concentrated on a single mode of transportation. Thus, it is problematic to generalize research results from one mode to another. This paper combines and synthesizes the output of three separate project delivery method research projects for highway, transit and airport transportation modes. Each study delved into the issues transportation agencies considered when selecting a project delivery method for a transportation project. The analysis finds that each mode of transportation views the various project delivery methods in a different manner. It concludes that the methodology used to select a project delivery method must be grounded in the business and regulatory environment of the specific mode and that attempting to generalize the findings of a study of one mode to another is not appropriate
