In February 2006, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NDHOT) hosted an Accelerated Construction Technology Transfer (ACTT) workshop, bringing together approximately 25 transportation professionals from around the nation.
ACTT is a strategic process that looked at using innovative techniques and technologies to reduce construction time on the I-93 project while enhancing safety and improving quality. The process was implemented by conducting a workshop for the NHDOT. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) jointly fund ACTT workshops. Please visit http://www.fhwa.dot.gov for more information on the ACTT process.
The primary objective of the workshop was to draw on the expertise of its participants to help NHDOT achieve its primary goal of minimizing construction time and costs for the reconstruction of the I-93 Corridor from the Massachusetts Stateline to the I-293 split in Manchester, one of the most congested and heavily traveled corridors in New Hampshire.
The workshop was conducted over a three-day period, and was facilitated by a member of the national Accelerated Construction Management Team (ACMT). Over the course of the workshop, participants were broken into Skill Set teams to examine how the ACTT concept could be implemented to accelerate various aspects of this project. The Skill Set teams included:
The draft recommendations were compiled and reviewed by the NHDOT and FHWA. To read, download or print the Final ACTT Report, please click on the link below.
