This research performed phase-based studies to determine effective project management tasks, strategies, and outsourcing activities for transportation infrastructure projects. A comprehensive literature review was conducted to discover phase-based project management strategies, tasks, and activities that can be adopted or outsourced by state transportation agencies (STAs), then a survey was designed and distributed nationally through an online platform to STAs. The results of the 96 survey responses were analyzed and demonstrated that team qualifications and environmental planning are the project management strategies that STAs adopt most often. The outcomes of this study will help decision-makers and project managers assess the effects of adopting effective strategies and outsourcing some activities on delivering transportation infrastructure projects on time, within budget, and with the desired level of quality.
