The U.S. infrastructure system as a whole received a D+ by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 2017. Age and an inability to meet current and future demands drove this poor grade. Climate change and more frequent and intense extreme weather events will only exacerbate this situation.
How can we identify roads, bridges, airports and other infrastructure systems most at risk and make the case for investment in these critical systems?
Janey Smith Camp, Vanderbilt Engineering Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency, will discuss how climate science and a suite of publicly available tools are being used to assess the risks and develop strategies for adaptation of infrastructure systems to build community resilience.
