ProjectWise is a project collaboration and architecture, engineering, construction, (AEC) information management software developed explicitly for the design and construction of AEC infrastructure projects.

Unlike traditional document management and collaboration software, ProjectWise is a system of collaboration servers and services for AEC information for the design and construction of infrastructure projects while the work is in progress. It provides scalable, industry-proven, advantages in work-sharing, content re-use and dynamic feedback.

ProjectWise is used to manage files and collaborate with internal and external customers within the state mega-projects including:

  • The Alaskan Way Viaduct
  • SR520 Floating Bridge
  • Tacoma HOV
  • Columbia River Crossing
  • Triangle Interchange
  • I-90 Two-Way Transit

Slow down – lives are on the line. 

In 2023, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.

Even one life lost is too many.

Fatal work zone crashes doubled in 2023 - Washington had 10 fatal work zone crashes on state roads.

It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.

95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
