    • Abstract:
      A series of recent severe weather events, including Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, revealed vulnerabilities in New York State’s transportation system. Future extreme weather events are expected to place greater strain on regional transportation infrastructure, driving up operations, maintenance, and repair costs. In response to these events, the Genesee Transportation Council (GTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Greater Rochester region, completed an assessment of potential vulnerabilities of critical regional transportation infrastructure to natural and human-caused hazards in June 2016. This project was the first systematic region-wide attempt to assess the vulnerability of the transportation network. Figure 1 shows an example of damage to the transportation infrastructure in the region. The assessment followed the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Climate Change and Extreme Weather Vulnerability Assessment Framework to identify critical infrastructure and assess infrastructure exposure, sensitivity, and vulnerability to the various hazards. Based on the hazard vulnerabilities, the project identified a broad range of strategies to reduce the impacts of hazards, including strategies related to planning and policy, communication, design and construction, and operations. The project also identified possible funding sources for adaptation strategies. FHWA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provided financial assistance through the GTC.
