Alameda County in the San Francisco Bay Area contains valuable transportation and community assets for the region, including major connecting bridges, freeways, a port and airport, homes and businesses. To assess adaptation options for a subset of key transportation assets vulnerable to sea level rise inundation maps were developed showing six different sea level rise scenarios, as well as a detailed asset inventory, 125 potential adaptation strategies to reduce the vulnerabilities of these assets to flooding, and five more detailed concept designs including living levees, a breakwater, and governance strategy.
