TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-R15B-RW-1: Identification of Utility Conflicts and Solutions provides concepts and procedures to identify and resolve utility conflicts that public agencies and utilities can use to help improve the highway project development process. Tools described in the report include utility conflict matrices that enable users to organize, track, and manage the conflicts that can frequently arise when utility lines are under highways.

Training materials developed as part of the project that developed Report S2-R15B-RW-1 are available online.

An updated report, Identification of Utility Conflicts and Solutions: Pilot Implementation of the SHRP 2 R15B Products at the Maryland State Highway Administration, is also available online.
