  • Compendium on Waterway Transportation Reliability: Lock Congestion and Lock Queues (1993)
    The papers presented in this compendium report research results on problems and proposed solutions on lock congestion and lock queues. The research results present suggestions or alternative solutions for improving the reliability of the inland waterways transportation system. The research is believed to provide a stimulus for useful discussion at the Division and District levels. Any comments on information presented in the articles should be addressed to the Navigation Division of the Institute for Water Resources.
  • Delay Estimation on Congested Waterways (1993)
    A simulation model has been developed for estimating delays on congested waterways and a numerical method has been developed to approximate the results of the simulation model.
  • FY 2000 Planning Guidance Shallow Draft Vessel Costs (2000)
  • Lock Rehabilitation a Public Infrastructure Problem: The Value of Increased Productivity in Mean Lockage Performance (1987)
    The nation's inland waterways infrastructure is aging and in need of rehabilitation and replacement. Economic analyses to date have overlooked the value of increased mean productivity, which results from lock rehabilitation. Productivity increases are measured in terms of decreases in the mean time it takes to transit a lock. The analysis develops a dynamic model for estimating these values.
  • Maritime Transportation System: Trends and Outlook (2007)
    USACE major responsibilities for waterborne commerce include dredging, development and maintenance of the inland and coastal waterways and related maritime infrastructure, and navigation aids. A firm understanding of marine transportation conditions and trends is critical in discharging those responsibilities. The U.S. Maritime Transportation System (MTS) no longer exists in isolation, but must interact with ports, land carriers, customers, communities, environmental restrictions and security concerns. This second in a series of Water Resources Outlook papers is intended to develop an understanding of the challenges faced by the MTS over the next 30 years and suggests roles for the private and governmental sectors, including the Corps. It is intended to provide a strong, fact-based foundation for policy, planning and priorities.

    Mississippi River Locks 12-25 (UMR 556 to 241) are critical to navigation on the Upper Mississippi River. In 2007 Lock 12 passed about 18 million tons, and Lock 25 passed about 30 million tons. Between June 13 and July 5, 2008, these locks were sequentially closed to navigation traffic for an unscheduled shutdown of the river due to flooding. A survey of the shippers and carriers affected by the emergency lock closures was conducted between 14 January and 6 March for the purpose of discerning industry reactions to the closures and the associated costs.
