Upcoming Webinars

Webinar Date Time
FHWA Webinar: Sustainable Pavements
 View Description 
This webinar is part of FHWA's webinar series on Advancing a Sustainable Highway System. This webinar will focus on sustainable pavements.
July 29, 2015 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET 
TRB Webinar: Using Winter Severity Indices for Winter Maintenance Performance Management
 View Description 
TRB will conduct a webinar on July 29, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that will share experiences from transportation agencies that have successfully developed a methodology for Winter Severity Indices (WSI) and have used it to measure and report performance. Three speakers—two from two state departments of transportation and a representative from Canada—will present their respective agency's approach. Assessing the performance of winter maintenance activities continues to be challenging for many state and local agencies. One of the primary challenges stems from the difficulty in comparing performance between events, regions, and seasons. Creating a winter severity index is one way to allow for a consistent approach to normalizing performance at an agency. This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Winter Maintenance. Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees.
July 29, 2015 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET 
TRB Webinar: Best Practices and Strategies for Assessing Economic Implications of Disinvestment or Right-Sizing Scenarios
 View Description 
TRB will conduct a webinar on August 12, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that will cover forthcoming NCHRP Synthesis 480: Economic and Development Implications of Transportation Disinvestment, which focuses on how state departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations manage their transportation infrastructure network to balance competing maintenance and shrinking investment budgets while mitigating the economic consequences. Webinar presenters will review the key findings from the synthesis and consider the implications of this work for follow-up NHCRP research. Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees.
August 12, 2015 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. ET 
TRB Webinar: Transportation Revenue Forecasting in the States
 View Description 
TRB will conduct a webinar on August 13, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that will present the results of NCHRP Synthesis 479: Forecasting Transportation Revenue Sources: Survey of State Practices. This synthesis features a survey of all state departments of transportation and documents current methods of revenue forecasting. This webinar will explore the current state of the practice regarding revenue forecasting. Panelists will highlight current and proposed forecasting methodologies, as well as some of the shortcomings of methods as reported by state departments of transportation (DOTs). Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees.
August 13, 2015 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET 
FHWA Webinar: Towards Sustainable Pavements: Maintenance, Rehabilitation, and End-of-Life
 View Description 
The FHWA launched the Sustainable Pavements Program in 2010 to advance the knowledge and practice of sustainability related to pavements. The overall objective of the program is to increase the awareness, visibility, and the body of knowledge of sustainability considerations in all phases of the pavement life cycle. Under that program, the FHWA has completed the technical resource publication "Towards Sustainable Pavement Systems: A Reference Document" (FHWA-HIF-15-002), and is now delivering a series of five webinars to help implement and promote key elements of pavement sustainability.
August 20, 2015 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. 
FHWA Webinar: Eco-Logical Mitigation Approaches
 View Description 
This webinar, part of FHWA's Eco-Logical Webinar Series, will address questions like: How do different agencies approach mitigation? What are the funding mechanisms for mitigation? What is the strategy for establishing a mitigation bank? How can agencies learn from each other when designing and implementing mitigation strategies? Participants will learn about 1) Landscape and watershed-scale mitigation, 2) How transportation agencies can work with resource agencies to establish mitigation banks and facilitate mitigation in general, and 3) Lessons learned from the recent Implementing Eco-Logical MPO and State DOT Mitigation Approaches Peer Exchanges.
September 1, 2015 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. ET
