Overview

Course Description
The goal of the Rivers & Roads Training Program is to advance an understanding of fluvial geomorphology across the transportation sector, to ultimately develop and implement projects that improve the resiliency of the Commonwealth’s transportation network.  Fluvial geomorphology allows us to understand river shape and process, to predict channel responses/changes over time, and to design culverts, bridges and roadways that are more resilient to severe precipitation events.  

MassDOT Highway Division has based this training program off of the successful Vermont Rivers & Roads program, and has developed Massachusetts specific content through partnership with Milone & MacBroom, MA Division of Ecological Restoration, MA Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, UMass Amherst, and MassDEP.

Target Audience
Anyone who manages, plans, designs or builds roadway infrastructure around rivers and roads.

** Prerequisite to Tier 2 **
