A two dimensional hydraulic model (FESWMS) is prepared to evaluate flood conditions for the Canal Parkway Project, located in western Maryland. The parkway includes a 32 meter bridge replacement of an existing arch culvert over the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and a significant roadway embankment encroaching upon the Potomac River floodplain. The study area includes a variety of complicated hydraulic features.
