RAILROADING THE ARMY ENGINEERS: A PROPOSAL FOR A NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING AGENCY

The authors see the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a large and competent agency, doing the wrong things as it plans and builds expensive, ineffective and environmentally destructive dams and reservoirs. At a time when the emerging national transportation program calls for massive rehabilitation of intercity railroad roadbeds and tracks, it is proposed that the Corps be reassigned from dams to railroads. The physical needs of the rail transport system, both in absolute terms and in social importance because of energy and employment considerations, far exceed those of the non-navigational aspects of water resources development.
