12/3/2020 EPA has released Tidal Restrictions Synthesis Review: An Analysis of U.S. Tidal Restrictions and Opportunities for their Avoidance and Removal

This has been a huge effort by EPA and supported by FHWA.  I hope you find it useful and informative and consider the opportunities to further identify and address tidal restrictions, and the potential to generate mitigation opportunities through the reestablishment of historic tidal exchange.  This is not only good for the resource and species, but for asset management by replacing these restrictions with resilient accommodating structures.
