Title: Virginia Critical Transportation Infrastructure Protection and Resilience (CIP V)
Project No.: 80768
Target Date: 04/04/2007
Abstract: This proposed project describes a two part research effort: Part I--Enhancing resilience of critical transportation infrastructures for major catastrophes (six months), and Part II--Integrating resilience, protection, and security of critical transportation infrastructures for risk management of major catastrophes (schedule to be determined). The proposed effort will demonstrate how to cost-effectively reduce the consequences of an important class of catastrophic events via application of risk management policies that both protect and improve the resilience of Virginia's critical infrastructures including transportation.
