Effects of Sea-level Rise on the National Transportation Infrastructure

Categorized Under: Climate, IT Solutions, Transportation



By integrating data from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and other sources, ICF modeled the impact of sea-level rise on U.S. coastlines and transportation infrastructure. ICF identified land at specific location that may be subject to regular inundation or that will be at risk of periodic inundation due to storm surges and the transportation infrastructure that may be affected. This detailed analysis aids DOT policymakers by providing estimates of sea-level rise impacts as they relate to roads, rails, airports, and ports.
