Expert Review Panel
The 2013 Legislature directed WSDOT to reconvene an expert review panel to evaluate the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program’s finance plan. The panel will update the work completed by 2011 and 2006 expert review panels.
The expert review panel will report findings and recommendations annually until the project is complete. The panel submitted a report and recommendations in 2012 and 2013 to the Governor, the Legislature’s transportation committees and the Transportation Commission.
The 2011 expert review panel included the following three members, selected by the Governor, the House and Senate transportation committee chairs and the Transportation Secretary (expertise noted in parentheses):
- Dr. Patricia Galloway, P.E., panel chair (megaproject management, contract administration and risk management)
- Bob Goodfellow, P.E. (underground construction and risk management)
- John Rose (financing large projects, budgeting and bonding)
