Historic Civil Engineering Landmark Program


The Historic Civil Engineering Landmark Program recognizes historically significant local, national, and international civil engineering projects, structures, and sites. The objectives of the program are to:
  1. Encourage all civil engineers to become more aware of the history and heritage of their own profession.
  2. Increase appreciation by the public of civil engineering contributions to the progress and development of the United States and the world.
  3. Identify and designate national historic civil engineering works that have made a significant contribution to the development of the United States and other countries and to the profession of civil engineering in particular.
  4. Encourage, where appropriate and feasible, the preservation of significant historic civil engineering works.
  5. Provide a documented archive of Civil Engineering Historic Landmarks for the use of engineering students, professional writers, researchers, and historians.
  6. Promote the inclusion of information on Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks in encyclopedias, guidebooks and maps used by the general public.
