Caltrans District 1 applied for and received a grant from the Federal Highway Administration to study the potential vulnerabilities of transportation assets to climate change throughout the district (Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, and Lake Counties), and to identify and evaluate a range of adaptation options to address the identified vulnerabilities at four prototype locations. The study was developed while working with all four Regional Transportation Planning Agencies and other federal, state, and local governmental/regulatory agencies.
