Foreword

A note from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the Federal Highway Administration:

The Blue Ribbon Panel on Bridge and Tunnel Security was formed from renowned engineering experts who generously contributed their time, without compensation, to guide government leaders, infrastructure owners, and the engineering community on how to improve the security of bridges and tunnels. Infrastructure owners are faced with new and largely unexpected challenges to provide physical security against terrorists' attacks on their critical structures. The panel's initiative and collective wisdom reflected in this report will help America meet these challenges.
