  • Abstract:
    The objective of this study was to generate a baseline understanding of current policy responses to climate

    change/variability at the state and regional transportation-planning and -decision levels. Specifically,

    researchers were interested in the question of whether state and regional governments were currently

    including climate change impacts or vulnerability issues in their decision and planning processes. The

    focus of this report is on the basic question: are state DOTs and MPOs in the United States addressing the

    issue of climate change in general and, more specifically, the issue of adaptation to potential climate

    change and -variability impacts? The research approach included content analysis, an in-depth survey of

    stakeholders, and interviews with stakeholders. The aggregate findings reveal that acceptance and

    movement in state DOTs and MPOs on these complex climate-related issues and solutions, where they

    exist at all, are slow. Mitigating the impacts from transportation appears to still be the primary policy

    linkage between climate change and transportation for these agencies. Public interest, political acceptance,

    and lack of downscaled state- and regional-level data are all factors that require further attention in the

    climate change/transportation nexus.
