In 2018, the state legislature passed a dramatic new highway plan that allotted $350 million to renovate or replace 340 bridges in two years. “That was about five times more than we typically addressed in a single year,” says KYTC program manager Royce Meredith. “It was a huge order, and we knew we’d need a team effort to succeed.”
To tackle the challenge, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet awarded a program management and design contract to a 22-firm program team led by Stantec. The team adopted e-Builder to manage the bridge projects to help scale quickly and provide a central information hub for the many teams and individuals involved.
