Over the past 15 years, the nation’s transportation systems have experienced numerous significant disruptions that have resulted in economic loss and loss of human life. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic is a recent example of how unexpected events can affect the performance and role of transportation systems.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 293: Deploying Transportation Resilience Practices in State DOTs examines the concept of transportation system resilience and how state departments of transportation could mainstream resilience-related approaches and procedures into their culture. The document is related to NCHRP Research Report 970: Mainstreaming System Resilience Concepts into Transportation Agencies: A Guide.

Supplemental materials to the report include RISE Posters and the Program and Highlights from the Transportation Resilience Innovations Summit and Exchange in October 2018.
