Vancouver Department of Transportation

Vancouver Transportation Departments are responsible for maintaining and improving transportation infrastructure, including state roads and highways, bridges, airports, ports and waterways, public transit systems, and railways in Vancouver. Infrastructure maintenance often involves emergency response to accidents, disasters, and inclement weather such as winter storms.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration regulates the nation's pipeline infrastructure and shipments of hazardous material by land, sea, and air.
