The primary goal of this proposal is to develop a comprehensive risk and resilience assessment framework for critical transportation and coastal infrastructure, using the RAMCAP framework as a baseline. The framework will identify potential risks to the infrastructure and analyze its resilience against natural and artificial hazards.

The intended outcome of the project is to provide valuable insights into critical transportation and coastal infrastructure risks and resilience and develop a comprehensive framework for assessing these factors. The proposed framework will help decision-makers prioritize investments and interventions to improve the state of good repair and extend the life of infrastructure.
