It has never been more important to ensure that our communities and transportation infrastructure are resilient to disruptions and natural disasters. Our experience in sustainable transportation and decarbonization helps agencies develop robust solutions to improve system resilience and reduce emissions to mitigate future impacts.


Resilience describes a community’s ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and successfully adapt to adverse events. Risk refers to events or conditions that have the potential to interfere with a transportation agency’s ability to perform its mission.  Our expertise lies in assessing risk and integrating resilience practices into long-range transportation plans, especially within the areas of performance management, asset management, and vulnerability assessments.

Our industry-leading work includes the development of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Post Hurricane Sandy Transportation Resiliency Study, transportation asset management plans for over 10 state departments of transportation (DOTs), and various regional and statewide long-range transportation plans (LRTPs) integrating resilience into DOT business processes and functional areas. This breadth of experience equips us to guide our clients (including federal, state DOT, metropolitan planning organization (MPO), local, and transit agency) in proactive resilience planning and risk management. 

We have experience at the federal, state, and local levels and help our clients with: 

  • Risk-Based Vulnerability Assessments   
  • Climate Adaptation Frameworks 
  • Resilience Improvement Plans 
  • Benefit/Cost Analyses  
  • Grant Applications – PROTECT  
  • Supply Chain Resilience and Economics 
  • Asset Management 
  • Emergency Management/Active Transportation 
  • Organizational Resilience 
  • Resilience and Sustainability Research 

Our Experience

Sustainability and Decarbonization 

Federal, State, and regional agencies depend on us to bring sustainable energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation considerations into policy, planning, and decision-making. Our data sources and methods allow robust analysis of energy and GHG impacts of transportation projects, policies, and programs.  

We are a recognized leader in assessing GHG mitigation strategy effectiveness, with over 15 years of high-profile national and state efforts, including developing NCHRP WebResource 1, Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Guide for State DOTs (2022), leading and supporting Carbon Reduction Strategies in a half dozen states, and helping states integrate emissions reduction into all aspects of transportation planning, programming, and performance.  

Our expertise spans emissions inventory development, air quality conformity analysis, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) project evaluation, carbon reduction and climate action plans, freight emission reductions, market-based measures, electrification and alternative fuels, cost-effectiveness analyses, grant application support, and project evaluation and monitoring. 

We have experience at the federal, state, and local levels and can help you with: 

  • Emissions and Energy Analysis 

  • Air Quality Planning 

  • Carbon Reduction Plans 

  • Electrification Planning
