The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will be highlighting climate change adaptation and resilience work in the transportation sector through a new case studies series. The first set of these new resources are now available on FHWA’s website:http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/climate_change/adaptation/case_studies/ 

Over 100 additional case studies will be added in the coming months.

FHWA funded the development of the case studies under a cooperative agreement with the Georgetown Climate Center (GCC) and these resources will also be available through the GCC’s Adaptation Clearinghouse.
