  • Abstract:
    The longest record of sea levels in the Western Hemisphere began in 1846 in Key West, Florida. It shows a steady and gradually accelerating sea level rise (SLR) — nine inches since 1900. The increasing rate of recent years has implications for Florida, with its long coastline, hurricane history, and low-lying coastal zones, and as a major infrastructure builder and manager, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) must understand possible impacts of SLR on the state’s transportation system. In this project, University of Florida researchers developed a sketch planning tool to assess the vulnerability of transportation facilities to SLR, building on previous FDOT-sponsored research (BDK79 977-01; 2012). That project recommend- ed two short-term actions: (1) Apply the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) methodology to develop statewide and regional projections of SLR; and (2) Develop a sketch planning tool to identify potentially vulnerable infrastructure. These actions are addressed in this project.
