Transportation Resilience

Transportation Resilience is the ability to adapt to changing conditions and recover from disruptions, such as major weather events. The impacts from both natural and human-related events can have significant and unexpected impacts to the transportation system.

The TPO is developing a guidance paper that provides further understanding of resilience; the role of the Ocala Marion TPO and its local partners in the planning process related to resilience; a summary of major vulnerability issues to consider in Marion County; identification of available state and federal funding to address resiliency; and recommended actions to integrate resilience into the TPO/MPO planning process. 

The Resilience Guidance Paper is expected to be completed by November 2021 and made available to the public on the TPO’s website.

Project Milestones:

  • Final Guidance Document, January 2022
  • Presentation to TPO Board, February 2022
