Incorporating resiliency into transportation infrastructure has become an increasingly important priority in Massachusetts as climate change effects have intensified and become more visible. In this study, MPO staff researched literature on resilience, conducted a community survey, and identified a roadway segment, Route 1A in the City of Revere, for a pilot study. Through this study, MPO staff gained knowledge and ideas about how to incorporate climate resiliency planning in corridor and intersection studies. The pilot study provided staff with the opportunity to put that knowledge and experience into practice. By being able to target vulnerable areas, the MPO may be able to proactively focus improvement efforts on these areas to preserve investments and improve safety.
