Short-Term Milestones (by end of 2017)
Working with the MTA, PA, NYPD, EM, and others, DOT will create contingency plans in the aftermath of disruptive climate events or in anticipation of major roadway or transit closures.
Given the extensive work of NYC Emergency Management to create contingency plans for NYC in the case of disruptive climate events, DOT has not pursued this initiative but continues to explore what action can be taken to better prepare our transportation network for such an emergency.
Medium-Term Milestones (by end of 2021)
DOT will regularly update contingency plans.
