TRB webinar on climate change adaptation features California and Michigan DOTs
“State departments of transportation are modifying their planning efforts and practices to adapt to the effects of climate change on facilities and operations. Transportation providers are seeking to learn what other states and regions are doing to address these issues. This webinar is the second of a two-part webinar, and will explore activities that are being undertaken by two state departments of transportation to adapt to climate change. Officials from the California Department of Transportation will provide an overview of the state’s adaptation planning efforts, efforts to coordinate activities, and future perspectives. Officials from the Michigan Department of Transportation will explore how they are incorporating adaptation practices in planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance.” A summary and recording of the webinar are available here.
