this paper aims to comprehensively detect the factors that exert influence on highway construction projects across the entirety of their lifecycle in Iraq. data were gathered via questionnaires distributed among 89 deliberately chosen participants hailing from construction enterprises, consulting establishments, and governmental bodies. By amalgamating pertinent existing literature, an assemblage of key factors impacting highway construction undertakings in Iraq was formulated. Subsequently, the collected data underwent systematic processing using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 26. Employing a combination of descriptive analysis and the Relative Importance Index (RII), a hierarchical ordering of these identified factors was established. The results of this investigative endeavor spotlight 15 particularly pivotal and dominant factors that exert their influence on highway construction endeavors in Iraq. This assemblage encompasses dimensions such as meticulous site investigation, precision in design blueprints, resource availability, adherence to project specifications and quality benchmarks, and deployment of superior-quality materials aligning with stipulations, The results yielded by this inquiry stand poised to furnish project overseers and decision-makers with channeling their attention toward these pivotal factors to realize an elevated standard of excellence in road construction, consequently curbing long-term expenses.
