Speeding up the delivery of transportation projects is high on everyone's agenda. Expediting Project Delivery (C19) was developed through SHRP2 to provide innovative approaches to the planning process to produce better projects and environmental outcomes while addressing the common constraints encountered during project implementation.
Expediting Project Delivery saves time by reducing project delays while also providing innovative approaches to improve transportation planning and decision making. The strategies enable agencies to anticipate where delays are expected to occur and to apply tested strategies to avoid or reduce delays during all phases of project development and delivery.
These strategies save time, reduce the need for rework, reduce the risk of unanticipated permitting and mitigation costs, and provide a framework for resolving disputes. The Expediting Project Delivery framework includes:
Twelve state and local agencies implemented C19 through the IAP, including the six lead adopters, Arizona DOT, Florida DOT, Idaho DOT, Maricopa Association of Governments, Massachusetts DOT, and Vermont AOT. Case studies detailing many of their experiences can be found below.

Two sequential sessions were held to showcase the results of six SHRP2 Expediting Project Delivery (C19) products. Each project funded through the Implementation Assistance Program was planned to implement one or more of the identified strategies.
