This circular focuses on research issues of concern to the inland water transportation industry. The six papers that comprise this circular were presented at the Transportation Research Board's 1999 Annual Meeting. Most of the papers are the result of major U.S. Army Engineers' studies on the Upper Mississippi River - Illinois Waterway, the Ohio River and tributaries, and the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint waterway systems. Two of the papers deal with inland waterway project justification, two deal with the environmental impacts of tow traffic, and two address efforts to reduce the costs due to upgrading and replacing locks.
