Rapid Processing and Transmission of WSDOT-Specific Shakemaps

A quick response by the Preservation Office to a major earthquakes is predicated on the availability of information concerning the magnitude of shaking experienced throughout the Puget Sound area. This study would customize and improve the Rapid Alert for Cascadian Earthquakes (RACE) system to provide specific information on WSDOT structures. Earthquake acceleration data, estimates of likely damage, and locations of affected structures will be provided to our Bridge Preservation section. Primary benefit is a quicker and more efficient response to earthquake events.
