Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine key components affecting schedule performance in reconstruction of transportation infrastructure following hurricanes. To conduct this study, comprehensive data on 30 case studies of post-hurricane reconstruction of transportation infrastructure were collected and analyzed. Next, significant factors that contribute to cost time delays in these projects were determined using appropriate statistical analysis methods. The method of factor analysis was then implemented to determine key components affecting schedule performance as well as reworks in the projects. The results that 23 factors (Fs) that contribute to cost time delays in post-hurricane reconstruction of transportation infrastructure were determined statistically significant. The results revealed that eight factors were recorded as key components for schedule performance in the stated projects. The findings of this study help project managers identify the significant factors that seriously affect the reconstruction schedule to allocate resources in reconstruction of transportation infrastructure due to hurricanes.
