Guide to Risk Management of Multimodal Transportation Infrastructure

The nation's transportation infrastructure is at risk from terrorist attacks due to the symbolic nature of the assets, their economic and mobility importance, and the potential for loss of life of users of the assets. Risks to transportation infrastructure generally involve the following: physical facilities, vehicles and vessels, information systems that monitor and manage the flow of goods, and people on the transportation system. This project focuses on physical facilities along with related information infrastructure; it does not include cyber-security. The objective of this research is to develop a Guide to Risk Management of Multimodal Transportation Infrastructure. The Guide will provide state DOTs and other transportation entities with a risk management methodology that can be used to conduct threat, vulnerability, and criticality assessments of their facilities and to determine cost-effective countermeasures to prevent, detect, and reduce threats to assets on a multimodal basis.
