Event Date Organization Event Name Type Location
Jan 23, 2019  TRB  TRB Webinar: Assessing the Value of Added Highway Capacity Projects  - This webinar will discuss how state DOTs and MPOs assess the benefits and costs of adding highway capacity versus other modal projects and services. Highway capacity refers to expanding existing facilities or constructing new ones. This assessment is typically conducted by state DOTs and MPOs at specific points in the planning and programming processes, representing distinct phases at which agency actions are formulated based on varying degrees of specificity related to alternative evaluation. The presenter will identify similarities and differences in the assessment of projects and services at various points throughout the project. He will also describe the program development timeline.

Webinar   
Feb 6, 2019  TRB  TRB Webinar: Adapting Shoreline Infrastructure to Sea Level Rise and Extreme Events  - This webinar will discuss how transportation planners can adapt to the changes in natural systems. Coastal states are suffering increased rates of flooding from gradual changes in sea level and hurricanes. State departments of transportation and local infrastructure agencies often struggle to keep up with these increased rates of flooding. Presenters will discuss the latest projections of sea level rise and the changing understanding about storm events. They will also describe adaptive planning techniques to these changes through case studies from transportation corridors in California and Georgia. Presenters will identify how to use predictive modeling to plan for more resilient transportation infrastructure, determine how to use adaptive management techniques, and highlight permitting issues that arise when infrastructure adaptation meets ecosystem needs.

The presenters will discuss the various approaches that exist for providing commuter rail. They will also identify factors that influence these different approaches. This webinar will discuss a decision tree analysis to assess different approaches for providing commuter rail or to evaluate changes to existing commuter rail services.
