Caltrans has released their District 4 Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment, 2018. This is the first of a series of reports to cover all districts in the state transportation system.  The report analyzes future transportation vulnerabilities in the Bay Area due to climate change -- temperature, precipitation, wildfire, sea level rise, storm surge, and combined effects.

This is the first step towards planning for a State Highway System that is more resilient to major storm events in the short term and to climate change in the long term.
