Utility coordination involves identification and possible relocation of existing facilities that may be in conflict with proposed highway and bridge projects. Successful utility coordination requires early and frequent communication with utility owners, as well as cooperation and clear identification of the project scope and schedule. To drive better coordination, PennDOT has launched the Utility Relocation Management System (URMS), which is a web-based application to organize and manage utility coordination for bridge and highway projects. The new application replaces the UR-EDMS system and the system is open to all PennDOT business partners.
