TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 753: A Pre-Event Recovery Planning Guide for Transportation is designed to help transportation owners and operators in their efforts to plan for recovery prior to the occurrence of an event that impacts transportation systems.

The guide includes tools and resources to assist in both pre-planning for recovery and implementing recovery after an event. NCHRP Report 753 is intended to provide a single resource for understanding the principles and processes to be used for pre-event recovery planning for transportation infrastructure.

In addition to the principles and processes, the guide contains checklists, decision support tools, and resources to help support pre-event recovery planning.

A PowerPoint presentation describing the project that developed the guide is available.
