... 1 The objective of this synthesis study was to document resilience efforts and how they are organized, understood, and implemented within transportation agencies' core functions and services. Core functions and services include planning, engineering, construction, maintenance, operations, and administration.
From page 2...
... 2 Resilience in Transportation Planning, Engineering, Management, Policy, and Administration DOTs as they move forward with their resilience programs as a way to help identify resilient practices and policies that address a broader range of activities that can be implemented to provide more than quick recovery post event to transportation assets. Resilience metrics also appear to be lacking in quantitative measures that can be readily calculated and assessed.
From page 3...
... Summary 3 Based on the information gathered through three distinct sources of data (a literature review, state DOT surveys, and case examples) , the three primary challenges for state DOTs for incorporating resilience into their management programs appear to be the following: • A lack of understanding on how resilience is related to risk assessment and management; • A lack of metrics to measure system resilience and the benefits expected from resilience investments; and • A lack of clear direction as to how system resilience and mandated transportation performance measures such as safety, infrastructure health, and system operations can affect each other.
