WHAT IS UTILITY COORDINATION?
Utility coordination is a process to ensure timely responses to Legal Mandate projects, whether they are initiatiated by the State DOT, Illinois Toll Highway System, County and Municipal roadway projects. Typically, Utilty companies are granted permits to occupy the right of way to service its customers, and along with that requires utility companies to comply with adjustment/relocation of facilities when directed to do so by the jurisdiction’s spearheading agency.
Utility delay in Legal Mandate projects are the number one cause for project overuns which ultimately is passed down to the spearheading agency as well as the taxpayer and last but not least, can be passed onto the utility causing the delay.
For a detailed description, see the following documentation from the Illinois Department of Transportation, Bureau of Design & Environment Manual (2010 edition) Chapter 6.
WHY USE UTILITY COORDINATION SERVICES?
Utility related conflicts can cause delays and significant cost added to roadway construction project. Every new project requires a detailed review of the existing utilities in place, and an analysis of potential conflict with proposed underground structures. Our experienced Utility Coordination Team can effectively identify conflicts on proposed plans, and propose solutions, either by “adjusting” the route of your facilities, or in some cases proposing design changes minimizing or eliminating the need to relocate your facilities. Our designers also will ensure that any relocations are coordinated with other utilities, ensuring conflicts do not develop during the course of the project. Our efforts are focused on saving our clients time and money.
Comdesco Group is a full service design firm specializing in sub- surface utility engineering and aerial utility design. Capabilities include initial surveying, route proposal, and permitting.
