Summary

Scouring of streambed material surrounding bridge structures is a leading cause of bridge failure in the United States. Damages resulting from bridge failure oftentimes lead to financial burdens and loss of life. To date, there has been no comprehensive evaluation of the current (2016) effectiveness of the guidance or overall long-term performance of bridge-scour countermeasures provided in the Federal Highway Administration, Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 23, Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures. To that end, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, obtained bathymetric, topographical, and other data at 14 of the surveyed sites across the United States to begin an evaluation [...]

Purpose

Supplemental topographic and bathymetric data were collected within the study area to assist in the description of the geomorphological characteristics of the features in and near the surveyed reach. These data are intended for science researchers, policy makers, and hydraulic engineers interested in assessing the condition of the channel bed and the scour countermeasures in place around the bridge foundations.
