Utah Department of Transportation I-15 Reconstruction

Program Budget: $1.3 Billion

Date: 1996

Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) responded to the transportation need resulting from Salt Lake City successful selection to host the 2002 Winter Olympic Games by making use of the design build delivery process to accelerate the construction schedule.  The aggressive construction schedule required $1 million of construction daily to achieve the deadline.   The projects consisted of 17 miles of roadway and 132 bridges, with a construction cost of more than $1.3 billion and a completion target date to accommodate Utah’s transportation need.

ATSER was contracted to provide project management services including management of the Quality Assurance Program, Engineering Inspection, and Verification Testing Services and Electronic Software Solution to collect, analyze and report results for what was at the time the largest transportation design-build contract awarded in the United States.

ATSER was responsible for deploying a “paperless” laboratory electronic system for collecting inspection and test data from four (4) independent laboratory sources. The data was collected offline, uploaded on a central server, analyzed and reported. The results were electronically transmitted to UDOT’s central server.
