This session will provide an overview of hazard mitigation planning activities relevant to transportation infrastructure and a recently completed low water crossing inventory and prioritization process in Dade, Dalls, and Polk counties in Missouri.  Topics to be tourched on include: overview of multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation plans, infrastructure considerations within the plans, available mitigation funding opportunities, and an overview of the low water crossing inventory, which included an assessment of over 900 structures in three counties.

Hazard mitigation is a timely topic to professional planners dealing with worsening storm conditions.  This session incorporates a case study of transportation infrastructure inventory and analysis that is relevant to the transportation planners attending this training.  Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to apply for hazard mitigation funds and use them to implement sound planning practices for the benefit of human health, safety, and welfare.
