Abstract

Researchers have developed several dimensions for measuring the resilience of transportation infrastructure while considering the interdependency among different critical infrastructure. Only a few of them are fully capable of measuring the resilience of an existing roadway as a standalone system. Therefore, this study aimed to identify and prepare a list of dimensions to measure the technical and organizational resilience of the roadway network. To achieve this goal, a comprehensive literature review of over 100 peer-reviewed articles was conducted and fourteen dimensions were listed. Results indicated that the number of nodes (intersections) on roads has a significant negative correlation with the resilience of the pavement network. Also, information dissemination and preparedness action are two dimensions that have a high level of impact on transportation network resilience. The findings of this study will help practitioners in developing appropriate strategies to enhance the resilience of transportation roadway networks.
