  • Abstract:
    This project lays the foundation for building an exchange hub for locational and security data and risk assessment of potential excavation work. It acts primarily at 2 stages: upstream of the mark-out process, as a decision support tool to help streamline, improve and guide the mark-out process, and downstream of the mark-out to gain and preserve information gained from such field verified data, and added intelligence to each utility asset management system related to the potential proximity of other utilities, and possible criticality of proposed construction activity in a given site that puts at risk key assets. Open to State Departments of Transportation, utility operators, One-Call System and regulators for planning infrastructure work and mark-out, this new information hub can also help guide emergency excavation work to be performed without the luxury of a detailed mark-out process. It can also provide critical sub-surface engineering (SUE) data required for planning and executing the highly uncertain and volatile utility relocation component of transportation infrastructure projects. Using interviews, systems analysis and other analytical methods, the project key deliverables include: (1) Functional Requirements Document, based on user needs. (2) Development of System Upstream and Downstream Functionality. (3) Development of Integrated Data Model and Interface Categories for integration of multiple sources of data. (4) Definition of Communication Protocols for Preservation of Intra-Utility and Inter-Utility Exchange Capabilities. (5) Development of Prototype for Information Exchange Hub, using representative lifeline Utilities. This project directly and indirectly meets the following USDOT Strategic Goals: Safety of Transportation system and the general population; State of Good repair, as it supports the repair and reconstruction of transportation infrastructure, including underground utilities; and Economic Competitiveness, based on the orderly expansion of infrastructure systems.
