Project Life Cycle

The Project Life Cycle is an implementation tracking tool that outlines the general project phases from inception to completion. The tool is intended to track progress of plan implementation and communicate the status of projects on an annual basis. The speed of implementation often corresponds to the complexity of each project, so some projects may move directly into construction while other may require more time in the preliminary phases of Development and Design.


Establish fundamental design goals and scope, and determine necessary steps to implement the project. This phase will also include a determination of required resources and the overall project budgets or phasing approach.

  • Establish project goals
  • Define design criteria
  • Confirm project needs
  • Design studies
  • Concept plans
  • Determine regulatory/permit requirements
  • Agreements/partnerships (if applicable)
  • Public outreach, as needed
  • Establish schedule and budget


Develop means, methods, and criteria to meet the project goals and design intent requirements.

  • Continued public outreach
  • Preliminary and final design
  • Site survey
  • Geotechnical analysis
  • Utility coordination
  • Cost and scope refinements
  • Develop construction packages
  • Permitting and clearances


Initiate construction activities and the process of constructing the project based on design.

  • Public information
  • Construction surveying
  • Utility relocation
  • Site work
  • Foundations/footings
