Utility Identification Letter – Step 1
The project manager sends this letter to a utility owner who does not provide utility information after a Gopher State One “Design Call” or a follow-up call from the project manager. The project manager sends the Utility Identification Letter to the utility owner’s main contact.
Utility Information Meeting Letter – Step 2
After identifying existing utility owners and gathering enough project information to proceed with the Utility Information Meeting, the project manager sends a Utility Information Meeting Letter to each utility owner.
Utility Design Meeting Letter – Step 5
The Utility Design Meeting Letter invites utility owners to the Utility Design Meeting and requests that they come prepared to discuss their relocations and schedules. The letter also asks that the utility owners review the information and verify their facilities on the plan set.
Request for Utility Relocation Plans Letter – Step 6
After the Utility Design Meeting, the project manager sends each utility owner a set of project plans, an official colored Application for Utility Permit, and the Request for Utility Relocation Plans Letter asking the utility owner to submit:
- Two copies of a relocation plan on 11” x 17” project plan sheets
- Two copies of a detailed schedule
- Two copies of estimates for reimbursable utility relocations
- Contact information for the utility representative who will manage the relocation
- Information to be incorporated into the utility special provisions
- A completed permit application.
Utility Design Change Meeting Letter – Step 8
When significant changes occur after the Utility Design Meeting, the project manager sends the Utility Design Change Meeting Letter to the utility owner to invite them to the Design Change Meeting. The letter requests that they bring the information from the Utility Design Meeting and the plan revision sheets.
When the GSOC confirms that all utility owners have been identified, the project manager sends the Utility Verification Letter to all utility owners asking them to verify the information.
