Monograph

Abstract:

This Guide was developed as a tool for State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to: 1) Assess the vulnerabilities of their physical assets such as bridges, tunnels, roadways, and inspection and traffic operation facilities, among others; 2) Develop possible countermeasures to deter, detect, and delay the consequences of terrorist threats to such assets; 3) Estimate the capital and operating costs of such countermeasures; and 4) Improve security operational planning for better protection against future acts of terrorism. The vulnerability assessment process presented in the Guide is derived from a careful review of information compiled from state, federal, and international agencies and their personnel.
