Webinar – Adaptation Strategies for Coastal Roadways
January 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join the California Coastal Resilience Network on Thursday, January 7th, 2021, from 12:00-1:00pm as we host the Mike Grim from the City of Carlsbad, Jessica Davenport from the State Coastal Conservancy, and Alyssa Mann from The Nature Conservancy to discuss best practices to prepare coastal roadways for the future of sea level rise, coastal storms and flooding, and erosion.
The speakers will discuss three projects about coastal roadways:
- The South Carlsbad Boulevard Climate Adaptation Project is engaging key stakeholders and the public to analyze and design a roadway realignment and community vision spaces through the lens of climate adaptation, incorporating nature-based solutions and identifying areas for enhanced coastal access and recreation, along South Carlsbad Boulevard.
- State Route 37: The Flyway Highway: A long term project to influence the redesign of 21-mile flood-prone and congested road that runs through the San Pablo Baylands in northern San Francisco Bay, so that it adapts to sea level rise while enabling the conservation and restoration of thousands of acres of tidal wetlands and migratory birds
- Resilient Highways and Coasts – Elkhorn Slough: The Central Coast Highway 1 Climate Resiliency Study explored how transportation infrastructure can be adapted to benefit nature and transportation, and how cooperative planning between sectors can improve outcomes for both. This study evaluated adaptation scenarios to integrate priorities from multiple sectors for maximum benefits to improve transportation safety and efficiency, provide economic security and benefits to the local community, and promote healthy coastal habitats.
