TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) S2-R09-RW-2: Guide for the Process of Managing Risk on Rapid Renewal Projects describes a formal and structured risk management approach specifically for rapid renewal design and construction projects that is designed to help adequately and efficiently anticipate, evaluate, and address unexpected problems or “risks” before they occur.

In addition to the report, the project developed three electronic tools to assist with successfully implementing the guide:

• The rapid renewal risk management planning template will assist users with working through the overall risk management process.

• The hypothetical project using risk management planning template employs sample data to help provide an example to users about how to use the rapid renewal risk management template

• The user’s guide for risk management planning template will provide further instructions to users who use the rapid renewal risk management template

Renewal Project R09 also produced a PowerPoint presentation on risk management planning.
