Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 50-02. Highway Hydraulic Engineering State of Practice

In 2012, the Federal Highway Administration published Highway Hydraulics State of Practice, a snapshot of highway hydraulic engineering policies and practices in state departments of transportation (DOTs). This document provided a comprehensive review of highway hydraulic engineering policies and practices, which vary widely from state to state. Since that time, DOTs have implemented a variety of changes to their policies and practices in response to emerging technology, regulatory requirements, environmental concerns, alternative project delivery methods, and other factors. The objective of this synthesis is to document significant changes that state DOTs have made to their hydraulic engineering policies and practices over the past decade. The study will highlight the trends and factors driving these changes.
