Abstract : A comparison is made of the pontoon, inflatable, and an integral hull (barge) type causeways to provide a basis for deciding if developmental work on a barge type causeway is warranted. The attributes of the three types of causeway are tabulated and discussed. A weight for each attribute is assigned and a comparison is made on this basis. The barge type does not appear to have a significant advantage over the other types to warrant development. (Author)
