Abstract
FLNRO, with technical assistance from the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and FPInnovations, conducted a case study of the vulnerability to climate change of infrastructure on the 70 km-long in-SHUCK-ch forest service road. The workshop participants followed a process established by the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC). This case study provided both meaningful analysis of the risks and opportunities faced by the in-SHUCK-ch FSR corridor and the communities it provides access to, and establishes a benchmark for future iterations of the process with resource roads. A series of recommendations are made that arise from the PIEVC analysis. These recommendations included the need to streamline and focus the PIEVC process specifically for resource roads, capacity building actions by road managers and maintainers, a review of emergency preparedness plans for the communities accessed by the FSR, actions to safeguard FSR infrastructure and residential development on lakeshore debris fans, a general review and inspection of drainage structures, actions to review and improve the resiliency of stream crossing structures and, finally, a recommendation to review the scope and size of the road maintenance program.

Abstract
The main objective of the present work is to respond to the second work area and complete LCAs focused on resource roads and transportation products and processes. Two LCA studies will be conducted; one study on resource road bridges and one study on hybridization of logging and biomass trucks. The present report undertakes an LCA of three resource road bridges.

Abstract
Given the benefits that resource roads provide to economic and social well-being, it is important to understand the impacts of a changing climate on resource roads and infrastructure. As the forest industry and governments move toward creating resource roads that are resilient to climate change, an early step in the adaptive management process is to assess the risks and vulnerabilities of infrastructure to climate change.

Abstract
Given the significance of resource roads, efforts are required to understand the implications of climate change in order to adapt roads and infrastructure to the potential impacts of these forecasted changes. The changing precipitation patterns and temperature regimes associated with climate change are expected to impact resource roads in ways that will affect the performance of the infrastructure. This is the first Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
Developing and implementing adaptation practices that reduce the negative impacts and the vulnerability of resource road infrastructure to climate change needs to be a priority for resource road managers. Ensuring that proper maintenance practices are identified and implemented is critical in obtaining resource roads that meet performance and service levels. With forecasted changes in climate, the importance of increased maintenance activities will be heightened to ensure road infrastructure resilience. This is the fifth Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
Developing and implementing adaptation practices that reduce the negative impacts and the vulnerability of resource road infrastructure to climate change needs to be a priority for resource road managers. In many regions of Canada, climate change is expected to bring changes in precipitation patterns. These changes will require a specific analysis of the hydraulic capacity of water crossing structures, as well as their projected needs to mitigate the risks to these structures. This is the fourth Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.
