The ResilientShasta Extreme Climate Event Mobility and Adaptation Plan. The plan will identify ways to help improve the safety, resiliency, and efficiency of our regional transportation system in the face of climate change extreme weather events.
The ResilientShasta project includes opportunities for stakeholder collaboration; developing “lessons learned” from recent wildfire, flood, and snow events; and addressing needs of vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and disabled. One area of particular interest is how we can improve and manage the regional transportation system to optimize the efficiency and safety of evacuation routes, emergency ingress, and detours during emergencies.
How Is ResilientShasta Funded?
The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA) was awarded a Caltrans Transportation Planning Grant in May 2019 that is funding the majority of the effort.
When Will ResilientShasta Be Completed?
The ResilientShasta plan should be completed by late 2021.
