Infrastructure & Resiliency

Infrastructure

Infrastructure

Each day in the Capital Region, we take 3.2 million trips by auto, transit, walking, or biking, traveling on the region’s 14,000 lane-miles of roadway (including over 800 lane-miles of Interstate Highways), over 1,000 bridges, and through over 1,100 traffic signals. Maintaining this infrastructure in a state of good repair is essential to regional mobility, economic vitality, and quality of life.

Resilience

Bad Weather on Infrastructure

With the increase in extreme weather events and other infrastructure stressors, the resilience of our transportation system is critical to the  economic, social, and environmental health of the Capital Region.

The Transportation Council will work with members and partners to identify critical assets and vulnerabilities of the region’s transportation system, as well as developing an adaptation framework to be integrated into the planning process.
