PRIORITIZING INLAND WATERWAY INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS

The US Army Corps of Engineers maintains an 11,000-mile inland waterway system which is vital to the economy. More than half the locks on this system will be over 50 years old by 2000. New locks must be funded partly from a trust fund that can support only three or four projects per decade, so lock investments must be prioritized. The Corps is developing a model of system-wide economic benefits under a constrained budget in order to accomplish this prioritization.
