Green InfrastructureTechniques for Coastal Highway Resilience

The objective of this task order is to produce research and technical assistance that will enable transportation agencies to use green infrastructure approaches to improve the resilience of coastal roads and bridges. This project will investigate green infrastructure techniques that could be implemented as part of highway and bridge planning, maintenance and construction to preserve and/or improve natural infrastructure function, thereby increasing the resilience of highways to the effects of storm surges and sea level rise. The project will provide information and analysis on green infrastructure techniques, benefits, costs, feasibility, and implementation considerations that transportation professionals need to make decisions on infrastructure projects. The contractor will develop a white paper, facilitate peer exchanges, and produce an implementation guide for transportation agencies based on the research and analysis conducted.
