Integrating Resilience into the Transportation Planning Process: White Paper on Literature Review Findings

This white paper on the efforts of State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to integrate resilience into the transportation planning process builds on the findings of a literature review assessing the planning documents for 52 State DOTs and a selection of 101 MPOs. Key research questions sought to understand how these agencies are considering resilience in their transportation planning process, including their motivation for such considerations, how they are assessing hazards posing a threat to their transportation networks, how they are addressing such threats and vulnerabilities, and their projections for future plans and events. This report includes examples of agencies’ efforts in order to better understand the current state of practice for resilience planning.
