View Executive Summary

CDOT recently the I-70 Risk and Resilience Pilot project and quantified the risk to assets along the I-70 corridor that severe events such as floods and rockfalls pose.  Many assumptions were used in the initial data model which included material costs, event likelihoods and event magnitudes among other factors.  The initial data model was refined to align with the methodology produced within the CDOT Risk and Resilience Assessment Procedure manual that was finalized in 2020, resulting in a second data set for I-70 threat-asset pairs.  This capstone project will be focused on conducting data analysis on the second round of data outputs, comparing the first and second rounds to ensure consistency in methods and inputs and evaluating differences in the resulting analysis.
