Abstract

The following report summarizes a vulnerability assessment conducted for that portion of the State Highway System (SHS) located in Caltrans District 1. The vulnerability study had 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) Conduct a vulnerability assessment to determine those Caltrans assets vulnerable to various climate-influenced natural hazards, and (3) Develop a method to prioritize candidate projects for actions that are responsive to climate change concerns, when financial resources become available.
