Climate Change Adaptation for Pavements - FHWA TechBrief

August 2015

This Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) TechBrief summarizes potential impacts of climate change on asphalt and concrete pavement systems and adaptation strategies that transportation agencies might pursue to limit impacts on these systems. The brief indicates that most of the research to date on climate change implications for pavements has been general, but efforts have grown to integrate climate change considerations into pavement design and to predict performance of pavements based on climate scenarios.

City of Tybee Island, Georgia, Sea-Level Rise Adaptation Plan

April 17, 2016

Tybee Island is a barrier island located 18 miles away from Savannah, Georgia - accessible only by a single causeway. The Tybee Island Sea-Level Rise Adaptation Plan identifies how more frequent coastal flooding and sea-level rise could impact low-lying infrastructure on the island; and provides a synthesis of the public engagement processes, technical research, and sea-level rise adaptation strategies.  The City of Tybee Island partnered with Georgia Sea Grant, the University of Georgia, and Stetson University to develop this sea-level rise adaptation plan.
