  • Abstract:
    This report was developed for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to document an assessment of the vulnerability the State Highway System in District 11 to the potential effects of climate change. This is one of 12 such studies being performed, one for each of the 12 Caltrans districts. Climate change and extreme weather events have received increasing attention worldwide as potentially one of the greatest challenges facing modern society. Many state agencies—such as the California Coastal Commission (CCC), the California Energy Commission (CEC), branches of the University of California, and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR)—have developed approaches for understanding and assessing the potential impacts of a changing climate on California’s natural resources and on the built environment, and for conveying this information to the public and decisionmakers. Caltrans is doing its part by undertaking the current set of studies to better understand the vulnerability of California’s State Highway System to future changes in climate. These studies have three objectives: 1) Understand the types of weather-related and longer-term climate change events that will likely occur with greater frequency and intensity in future years, 2) Identify Caltrans assets vulnerable to various climate-influenced natural hazards, and 3) Develop a method for prioritizing candidate projects, taking financial constraints (among other things) into consideration. The vulnerability studies are being conducted at the district level in recognition of the fact that each of the 12 Caltrans districts faces its own set of challenges regarding future climate conditions and potential weather-related disruptions.
