Climate Action Plans and Long-Range Transportation Plans in the Pacific Northwest: a review of the state of practice

Using online research and a survey, the authors of this report evaluated if and how agencies in the Pacific Northwest are preparing for climate change in their climate action plans (CAPs). Additionally, the report indicates if the goals and recommendations of CAPs are reflected in long-range transportation planning (LRTP) documents; providing examples of how CAPs can better support transportation planners. This report includes a discussion of projected climate change impacts on surface transportation infrastructure and operations by state. Key resources and strategies are identified to address climate change adaptation in long-range transportation planning efforts.
