  • Abstract:
    Since 2014, US and Dutch counterparts have been collaborating on the topic of infrastructure resilience under a bilateral agreement between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Rijkwaterstaat (RWS), the Netherlands' Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. During the first two years, each side learned about each other's tools and approaches. During the second two years of collaboration, FHWA and RWS are testing climate change resilience tools developed in both countries on two infrastructure projects. The Netherlands project is the InnovA58 project, which expands a roadway in southern Holland from two lanes in each direction to three lanes in each direction. The US project is the SR167 completion project, which completes a critical missing link to Interstate 5 near Tacoma, Washington, including approximately 6 miles of new construction and 5 new interchanges. The analysis frameworks and accompanying tools that FHWA and RWS are testing are the European ROADAPT methodology and the US FHWA Climate Adaptation Framework. From April 8-15, 2017, a subject matter expert from FHWA, two from the Washington State DOT, and one from the US Department of Transportation Volpe Center traveled to the Netherlands to meet with project managers for the A58 project, climate scientists, and experts in climate adaptation, asset management, emergency management, sustainability, and smart mobility. This report synthesizes some of the information and perspectives gained during that visit that may be useful for application in the US context. It focuses on the climate vulnerability analysis of the Dutch InnovA58 project, the inclusion of climate resilience specifications in the design contract for the project, and innovations beyond resilience that are being integrated into the InnovA58 project in a complementary manner. An FHWA report to be completed in 2018 will include information on the analyses of both the InnovA58 and SR167 projects, a comparison of the Dutch and US climate resilience tools, and lessons learned to improve the tools and the resilience of future road projects in both the US and the Netherlands.
