- To browse a list of all the lessons, leave the keyword field blank and click the find lessons button or just hit the enter key. The lessons will appear in alphabetical order by the project name, so you can search for lessons on a specific route by looking for the route number after the I, SR or US route designation.
- To search for a lesson by keyword, enter a word describing what you are searching for. The results will pull up any lesson with that exact word and spelling. If you enter two words, both words must appear in the same lesson for the system to retrieve the record. It is best to begin by entering one word, and filtering lessons out with more criteria if too many records are returned on the first search. Avoid using an s on the end of a keyword as only records containing the word in plural will appear. For instance, if you are searching for lessons relating to soils, try typing in soil as a keyword for more results.
- If you are getting too many records using a keyword search, or if you are looking for lessons from a specific region, category, phase, or to search for lessons submitted within the last 60 days try using the advanced search.
