Section 8: Intermediate Design MeetingsAnchor: #i1003587
The TxDOT Project Design Engineer is responsible for the frequency of intermediate design meetings, based on the complexity of the TxDOT-Utility cooperative design effort. The meetings are intended to:
- Anchor: #KXSQQRUR
- track the progress of ongoing design processes; Anchor: #KISPGTSI
- further develop design concepts from previous meetings; and Anchor: #CWVCPKHS
- explore information returned by the various utility entities or SUE provider to determine potential impact or concern. Alternative designs should be investigated and implemented to mitigate or minimize impact to utility facilities.
Highway design features. including drainage, footings, and foundations typically affecting utility facilities should be developed to a preliminary state (within reasonable tolerances) to allow evaluation not later than the 60% plan completion milestone.
