Amador County Transportation Commission and Calaveras Council of Governments




Amador and Calaveras County, in partnership, received a grant award from the Caltrans Adaptation Planning Grant program to study impacts from Extreme Weather events and prepare Prevention and Response Strategies to mitigate the degree of personal injury and damage to roadways and related infrastructure caused by fire and flooding. The study will assist the region's emergency preparedness for extreme weather events especially impacting vulnerable populations. The Project Team issued a Request for Qualifications for consultant assistance in October, 2018. The Project Goal is to improve safety, resiliency, and sustainability of roadways in Amador and Calaveras Counties for use in emergency situations and to foster healthy, livable communities by preparing for extreme weather-related risks and minimizing anticipated economic and personal injury.
