Navigating the Future of Transportation: Digital Delivery Transformation in Oklahoma

Published in the May 2024 USDOT e-news bulletin - Innovation in Project Delivery

In an era defined by technological innovation, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation is embracing the challenge of establishing a more efficient and digitally-driven project lifecycle.

The ODOT Digital Delivery program started as a pilot cross-functional design team in January 2022, and quickly evolved into a permanent, dedicated digital delivery team as the advantages of data enhanced 3D models became apparent.

One of the key benefits of Digital Delivery is its ability to enhance collaboration and communication among project stakeholders. ODOT started training all of the design engineers and technicians in Open Roads Designer (ORD) and Open Bridge Modeler(OBM) in 2020. New modeling practices are helping engineers optimize resource allocation and improve cost-effectiveness. By simulating various design scenarios in 3Dmodels, ODOT can identify potential risks and opportunities early in the project lifecycle, minimizing costly rework and delays down the line. Through its Digital Delivery initiative, ODOT is revolutionizing the way projects are planned, designed and executed in Oklahoma, paving the way for a smarter and more interconnected Department of Transportation.
