Hillsborough County’s location along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay leaves it vulnerable to storm surges, flooding from hurricanes, and sea-level rise. To better understand this issue, the MPO participated in a Federal Highway Administration Transportation Vulnerability Assessment Pilot Project which was completed in October 2014. Since then, findings and follow-up from the study has been shared at a number of National Peer Exchanges and FHWA documents.
