The Vermont Transportation Flood Resilience Planning Tool

Apr 1, 2019

Stone worked with the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), a multi-disciplinary team of consultants, and a variety of local, regional, and state agency partners to develop the Vermont Transportation Resilience Planning Tool (TRPT), a web-based application designed to help integrate climate risk and transportation resiliency into VTrans’ planning process and ultimately create a more resilient transportation network in Vermont. The TRPT, advanced through the Methods and Tools for Transportation Resilience Planning Project, combines river science, hydraulics and transportation planning methods to help VTrans and project partners understand the vulnerability of their transportation systems to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather and identify and prioritize mitigation strategies to avoid or minimize the impacts of future damages in the most critical, highest risk locations.

In 2018, the project and app received the Grant Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Vermont (ACEC/VT) and the GIS & Data Science Project of the Year from the Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI).
