The increased frequency of extreme rainfall events, inland and coastal flooding, and other water-related stressors poses challenges to roadway infrastructure.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 602: Resilient Design with Distributed Rainfall-Runoff Modeling documents the practices of state departments of transportation on the use of DRRMs and identifies state DOTs that have adopted DRRMs and the context in which these models are applied.
