The bill also gives the military authority to improve roads near bases that are threatened by sea level rise and have seen frequent flooding. Funds are also allotted to more security for expected traffic increase caused by Arctic ice melt. The U.S.’s Arctic Strategy  addresses the permafrost thaw which has already damaged one munitions maintenance facility in Alaska which will be replaced with new funds.
