The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is embarking on one of the largest and most complex programs in its history with the replacement of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct (AWV). Earlier this year, the State Legislature approved a plan to replace the viaduct along the Seattle waterfront with a 1.7 mile long, deep bored tunnel. To help ensure that the project is a successful one, the state recognizes the need to manage the risks on this program and exploit its opportunities.
Currently, WSDOT, is a leader among state DOTs concerning risk management. In 2002, it developed its own risk assessment process, called Cost Estimate Validation Process, or CEVP; pronounced, see-vip. This process has been used on hundreds of WSDOT projects during the past seven years. However, for a project as large and complex as the AWV program, the typical WSDOT risk management processes had to be modified significantly.
Please join WTS Puget Sound and AACE Seattle for this exciting program, which will include an overview of the project and its current status, as well as what the state is currently doing to manage its risks on this mega project.
