North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) projects with construction costs of 50 million or more, known as mega projects, make up more than 50% of their total construction expenditures while representing less than 10% of the total project count. The estimated construction expenditures for these projects can vary significantly. This paper provides a new perspective on monitoring mega projects during construction to quickly recognize and mitigate developing problems. The research methodology included an extensive literature review that analyzed strategic milestones and expenditure payouts for recently completed transportation mega projects. . The paper contributes a new approach for identify projects that are not meeting their original construction performance baseline goals (and require intervention for corrective action) during construction, which can result in costly project delays.
