In this session, participants will learn how MPOs are addressing resiliency and responding to hazard events that disrupt system performance and damage infrastructure.  It will offer examples of how MPOs can assess vulnerability and the potential impact of hazard events on transportation assets and adapt the transportation system to mitigate those impacts, thereby enhancing community resilience and sustainability.  The presentation by ARC will specifically discuss the collapse of the major Atlanta interstate that impacted 250,000 daily commuters.
