National Research and Innovation Project Coordination Tasks at U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)

The purpose of the work is to conduct research into the issues related to the review and approval of bridge permit applications, including all associated environmental review aspects, with respect to the intermodal transportation system and to use the results of the research to develop recommendations and prototypes for additional programmatic guidance, facilitate the development of process improvements, disseminate the results of research through enhanced inter-agency coordination and to support the development of training capabilities that promote early coordination and process improvement efforts between United States Coast Guard (USCG) District Bridge Offices and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and State Departments of Transportation (DOT's). The goal of this research is to provide a basis for the timely design and implementation of adequate, safe and economical transportation improvements while also assuring that such design and implementation is sensitive to the protection of maritime navigation and the waters of the US for which the USCG is responsible under Federal statute and regulation.
