Abstract: The efficient deployment of any major project requires careful planning of the management, scheduling and budgeting activities associated with its implementation. The Woodward Corridor Light Rail Transit (LRT) Program, one of largest public works projects ever to be proposed in southeast Michigan, requires particularly detailed and careful planning because of its magnitude. While the benefits of proper project planning are evident to most, there is another type of planning whose importance is frequently underestimated and misunderstood. This definition of planning, i. e. the conceptual planning which underpins basic design and construction decisions, serves as the focus of this paper.
