Module 1 Project Owner and Coordinate PA
Marcos Bernal, Senior Damage Prevention Liaison, Pennsylvania 811
Learn how to utilize the Pennsylvania 811 Coordinate PA application from the perspective of a Project Owner. Coordinate PA is a web service application used to support Public Works and utility project planning and utility coordination within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Utility companies, public works directors, and others describe their projects on a map. Coordinate PA then shows the projects and the project time frames for users and automatically identifies opportunities for collaboration between projects. Coordinate PA integrates with Pennsylvania 811’s Web Ticket Entry process to create design and excavation notifications to increase project safety and reduce project costs as required by Pennsylvania’s Underground Utility Line Protection law.
