RCAP Database | Risk Reduction & Emergency Management: RR-4

Identify transportation infrastructure at risk from climate change in the region; determine whether, when, where, and to whom projected impacts from climate change might be significant. Employ inundation mapping, modeling and other appropriate tools to assess the vulnerability of transportation infrastructure to the projected impacts of climate change under various sea level rise and other climate change scenarios. At a minimum, assess the vulnerability of the following transportation infrastructure:

  • local transportation networks of the Compact Counties
  • the Regional Transportation Network designated by the Southeast Florida Transportation Council composed of interconnected, strategic corridors (roadway, rail line, waterway), hubs (airports, seaports, intermodal terminals, freight terminals, passenger rail and intercity bus terminals) and connectors critical to the mobility of people and freight and the region’s economic competitiveness and quality of life; and evacuation routes adopted under the Statewide Regional Evacuation Corridor Program.
