Review of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Restructured Upper Mississippi-Illinois River Waterway: Feasibility Study.HE630
Review of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers restructured Upper Mississippi-Illinois River waterway waterway, natural or artificial navigable inland body of water, or system of interconnected bodies of water, used for transportation, may include a lake, river, canal, or any combination of these. ; feasibility study The analysis of a problem to determine if it can be solved effectively. The operational (will it work?), economical (costs and benefits) and technical (can it be built?) aspects are part of the study. Results of the study determine whether the solution should be implemented. .

The Upper Mississippi River is the portion of the Mississippi River upstream of Cairo, Illinois, United States. has caused waterway congestion The condition of a network when there is not enough bandwidth to support the current traffic load.
congestion - When the offered load of a data communication path exceeds the capacity. , causing some ships to wait from several hours to several days. The Army Corps of Engineers has been working on resolving this very large and complicated problem for some time, and this preliminary review by a committee in the National Research council includes recommendations on how the Corps of Engineers should proceed in developing modular spatial price models, managing waterway congestion, integrating systems planning to consider environmental issues, and creating funding. One recommendation is that the Corps of Engineers should extend their schedule to meet these concerns.
