Although the A4 highway connects three of the four most important cities in
the Netherlands, it is missing sections. In fact, a notorious 7,000-meter gap
lies between Delft and Schiedam, which causes traffic jams on the adjacent A13
connecting the Hague and Rotterdam. ARCADIS created conceptual designs for
the design and construction of the Delft/Schiedam link for the Dutch government.
The project teams used Project Wise to collaborate and complete the environmental
impact analysis in parallel, which enabled the team to save significant time
finding, validating, and accessing project information. The new highway is the
most environmentally friendly highway ever constructed in the Netherlands.
Requirement Management With Project Wise Dependency Manager
The USD 1. 4 billion I- 74 Mississippi River Crossing Corridor will connect
Davenport, Iowa, and Moline, Ill. The project requires maintenance of traffic
for 75,000 motorists while not only building new bridges, retaining walls, and
ramps, but also demolishing old structures. Collaboration among the Iowa and
Illinois departments of transportation, 10 consultants and 10 state and local
agencies was facilitated by a web-based portal for sharing project documents.
In addition to MicroStation and GEOPAK, the firm used Project Wise as the
central storage system, which allowed more than 700 users in five states
to access the 28,000 project documents. The portal enabled seamless
communications among team members. As the area’s traffic needs continue
to grow, the I- 74 Mississippi River Crossing Corridor will continue to improve
traffic flow, mobility, and safety, and enhance economic development
opportunities in the region.
