This is a webinar hosted by the Fraser Basin Council and B.C. Ministry of Transportation to explore issues relating to the protection of transportation infrastructure from the effects of climate change. The specific focus is on future warming and precipitation trends and the expected impacts on British Columbia’s highway infrastructure. The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure recently conducted climate change risk assessments for a number of BC’s major highways: Coquihalla, Yellowhead, Bella Coola, Stewart and Pine Pass. In the webinar, Chief Engineer Dirk Nyland offers an overview of the risk assessments and case examples. While focused on provincial highways, the overview and examples offer information useful for municipalities.
This webinar is part of the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative (BC RAC) webinar series.
