Transportation system resilience

What we know

Climate change impacts the way we build, operate, and maintain transportation infrastructure. A warmer and wetter Minnesota causes risks to our roads, bridges, culverts, and pipes.

Why this is important

Minnesota’s climate is getting wetter and warmer. Extreme weather is already disrupting the transportation system. Projections show more extreme precipitation is on the way.
