SB1 Case Study: Fresno County Regional Transportation Network Vulnerability Assessment



Fresno Council of Governments




The Fresno Council of Governments (Fresno COG) conducted a Vulnerability Assessment for the Fresno County regional transportation network with a 2018-2019 Caltrans SB 1 Adaptation Planning Grant. The Vulnerability Assessment identifies areas of the region where the multi-modal transportation network is vulnerable to potential impacts of climate change, such as wildfire, extreme heat, and changes in precipitation, and identify strategies to remedy those impacts that have co-benefits to public health, natural ecosystems, social equity, the economy, and greenhouse gas emissions. The Vulnerability Assessment provides information that local agencies may use and integrate within their general plans, the next update of the Regional Transportation Plan, and identify projects that may be incorporated into future federal, state, and local transportation funding programs.
