Although a limited number of Design-Build (D/B) projects have been undertaken nationwide, it appears that there is significant interest in this technique to facilitate more expeditious project delivery and to better manage cost with respect to the DOT's overall capital budget.

This task will develop guidance on appropriate methods for insuring environmental commitments are carried forward once the primary responsibility for the project is transferred from the DOT to the D/B entity.
