National Peer Exchanges on Transportation Vulnerability

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.
