ASCE’s Historic Civil Engineering Landmark Program recognizes historically significant local, national, and international civil engineering projects, structures, and sites. Through dedications, a physical plaque on site, and an online historical record open to all, the landmark program:
- Increases public appreciation of civil engineering contributions to the progress and development of society;
- Provides civil engineers with an historical awareness of their own profession for both practical insights and pride;
- Encourages the preservation of significant historic civil engineering works; and
- Fosters the inclusion of civil engineering landmark information in encyclopedias, guidebooks and maps.
