Transportation-Related Water Projects

Science Center Objects

The USGS has a long history of cooperative investigations with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and state highway agencies to provide data and information to address various issues related to water resources and the Nation’s transportation infrastructure. These issues cover a wide spectrum and include items such as regional flow statistics, flood documentation, regional stream characteristics, bridge scour, and water‐quality assessments. Each year, the USGS prepares a summary of its activities that may be of Interest to the FHWA and state highway agencies and presents them at the Transportation Research Board meeting of the Hydraulics and Hydrology Committee.
