The potential of green infrastructure in mitigating flood impacts: Focused on the mobility of low income and minority communities

Short-term flooding from extreme storm events poses a serious transportation challenge in U.S. cities. This problem -- which is anticipated to grow over the next century with our global climate crisis -- is often hardest on vulnerable populations, including low-income and minority neighborhoods. The latest report from the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), led by Courtney Crosson of University of Arizona (UA), advances national research methods for assessing flood vulnerability and prioritizing transportation improvement investments to ensure that no community is left stranded when the next flood occurs.
