Resiliency & Sustainability: From Planning to Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Operations
The Route to Resilience: Lessons from Integrating Resilience into Transportation Assets
Transportation networks and the organizations that run them were asked how to manage the complexities of a changing climate while being prepared to rebuild with a goal of sustainability in the event of a disaster. This interactive session highlighted real-life challenges for a tightly moderated, collaborative session – leaving with inspiration and ideas to take home. The session moderators hailed from across the country bringing lessons from the Colorado floods in 2013, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Superstorm Sandy in New York and New Jersey. Perspectives on resilience are applied through a planning, accounting, finance, and construction lens.
