Bank Protection Toe-Downs and Local Pier Scour
The zone-of-influence for pier scour may impact bank protection toe-down depths. Countermeasures were required at a site along the Salt River in Phoenix, Arizona when the alignment of...

Large River Diversion Optimization Considering the Uncertainties Involved
Temporary river diversion during major construction (i.e., large dams) is a challenging job. Selection of diversion system capacity and the dimension of the system components are subject...

HOV Fix on I-66
Construction has been under way since December 1993 on a project to widen and add a high occupancy vehicle lane on a 12 mi section of Interstate 66 from Route 50 to the City of Manassas...
