Session Description

Technical Tour: Rhode Island DOT Transportation Asset Resilience
North Road, located on Jamestown Island, is partially built on a causeway and is susceptible to regular, sunny-day flooding such as King Tides as well as climate change and sea level rise. A box culvert, built nearly 80 years ago, is in poor condition and needs to be replaced. However, there are numerous challenges in doing the necessary work. Join RIDOT in touring the North Road in Jamestown, RI, and to better understand and assess the risks for the existing infrastructure, identify adaptation strategies, and potential infrastructure- and nature- based solutions, and make decisions that improve its resilience to ensure that it can continue operating, both now and in the future.
