The Highway Geology Symposium was established to foster a closer cooperation and better understanding between geologists and civil engineers in the highway industry. Traditionally the event draws an attendance of 150-175 engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers from state and federal agencies as well as consultants, colleges, and universities from all over the country.
