This report addresses the ability of transportation facilities in California to survive four postulated earthquakes that are based on historical events. The survival of highways, railroads, ports, airports, and pipelines is investigated following individual earthquakes along the San Andreas and Hayward faults in Northern California and the San Andreas and Newport-Inglewood faults in Southern California; however, most damage would be of a local nature, affecting either the San Francisco Bay Area or the Los Angeles area. Major intercity routes would survive intact outside the damaged area. The report identifies critical routes and highlights the need for emergency planning to focus repairs on these routes.
