Functional Loss Risks of Highways in Permafrost Areas Due to Climate Change

The article gives the analysis of functioning of highways, which are exposed to the destruction risks caused by climate change in the territories of the Arctic zone and the location of permafrost, original methods for preserving transport infrastructure facilities survival are proposed. Methods for quantitative risk assessment of natural hazards for transport infrastructure, adaptation measures in road construction to possible climate change are discussed. The technology of self-adjusting soils stabilization using vapor-liquid seasonal cooling devices immersed inside screw piles is proposed for improving the reliability of pile-elevated road structures.
