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.

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. The management of water across the forested landscape is expected to be a greater challenge in response to predicted climate changes in many regions of Canada. These changes in landscape water movement and seasonal timing could challenge existing resource road drainage infrastructure. This is the third Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
Intelligent transportation system safety applications such as an approaching vehicle emergency warning, co-operative collision warning system, and co-operative adaptive cruise control, may have potential to improve road user safety on resource roads. This report documents a feasibility study of these safety applications under the operating environments and road conditions of resource roads. This report found that existing safety messages could be tailored to the needs of resource road operations. Two safety-related use cases (i.e., oncoming vehicle warning and one-lane bridge warning), and two non–safety-related use cases (i.e., platooning and teleoperation) are presented. This report is part of V2X report series. Refer Technical Report no. 20 to know more about user interface for broadcasting V2V basic safety messages to drivers and Technical Report no. 55 for V2X coverage results.
