Scoping Study to Develop the Basis for a Highway Standard to Conduct an All-Hazards Risk and Resilience Analysis

The AASHTO Committee on Transportation System Security and Resilience and the Subcommittees on Risk Management and Asset Management have, collectively, identified the need for a transportation-specific framework that responsible agencies can use in conducting their own all-hazards risk and resilience analyses to facilitate enterprise-wide transportation decision-making. Research was needed to develop this framework and provide guidance on its use.  The objective of this research was to provide a scoping study for a transportation framework for all-hazards risk and resilience analysis of transportation assets. The scoping study was to accomplish the following objectives: (1) Develop a comprehensive and consistent set of risk- and resilience-related terminology for transportation agency use; and (2) Provide a research roadmap for developing a framework for a quantitative all-hazards risk and resilience analysis of transportation assets, with its associated tools, and guidance on its application.
