Alternate Title: Resilient and Sustainable Transport - Dutch Style: An Interim Report on Bilateral Cooperation Between the Federal Highway Administration and Rijkwaterstaat
"Since 2014, US and Dutch counterparts have been collaborating on the topic of infrastructure resilience under a bilateral agreement between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Rijkwaterstaat (RWS), the Netherlands' Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. During the first two years, each side learned about each other's tools and approaches. During the second two years of collaboration, FHWA and RWS are testing climate change resilience tools developed in both countries on two infrastructure projects. The Netherlands project is the InnovA58 project, which expands a roadway in southern Holland from two lanes in each direction to three lanes in each direction. The US project is the SR167 completion project, which completes a critical missing link to Interstate 5 near Tacoma, Washington, including approximately 6 miles of new construction and 5 new interchanges. The analysis frameworks and accompanying tools that FHWA and RWS are testing are the European ROADAPT methodology and the US FHWA Climate Adaptation Framework."
