TRB Webinar: Rock On - The Impacts of the Mischaracterization of Rock February 03, 2021 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

What happens when rock is mischaracterized? TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern to discuss the consequences of mischaracterizing rock in transportation projects. There could be significant project cost overruns, legal claims, and project delays if the volumes, types, or locations of materials are substantially different from bidding documents. Presenters will explain how to better characterize rock to increase accuracy and expediency in transportation projects.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Geotechnical Instrumentation and Modeling, and Soil and Rock Properties and Site Characterization.

The Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program continues to monitor the performance of pavement test sections throughout the country. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern to share the program’s most recent activities. Presenters will discuss the initiative taken by the program to update the data analysis plan which affect many state departments of transportation. They will also discuss the expansion of the LTPP InfoPave™ web portal by highlighting FHWA InfoMaterials™. This webinar will also recognize winners of the 2019-2020 data analysis student contest, and one winner will present his paper.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Committee Section on Pavements.

TRB Webinar: People Movers and Shakers - Quality of Life in Airport Communities February 08, 2021 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00

Airports make every effort to minimize negative impacts and maximize benefits to their surrounding communities. TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, February 8, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will help airport management make the most of their impact on the communityAirports conduct economic impact analyses, employment studies, and environmental studies. However, airports can gain a more complete understanding of the variables affecting their surrounding communities by measuring quality of life (QOL). Community QOL is a multi-dimensional concept that refers to a community’s perceived and actual well-being and position in life. It also reflects a broad range of indicators. Presenters will discuss a tool that airports can use to assess community QOL. They will describe how it can help airports engage their communities, and inform airport decision-making to prioritize areas that the airport can influence and those that offer the greatest potential to improve.

The webinar features research from ACRP Research Report 221: Measuring Quality of Life in Communities Surrounding Airports.

TRB Webinar: Driving Toward the Truth - Dispelling the Myths About Cannabis Products February 10, 2021 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

What are the state and federal laws for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) products? The rapidly changing landscapes of the use of these products has caused confusion about traffic safety related outcomes. TRB will therefore host a webinar on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to provide an overview of the recent changes in the legal status of TCH and CBD products and industry. The known effects of THC on driving performance and crash risk will be discussed and the risk of unknowning exposure to THC in hemp and CBD products will be explained. Attendees will obtain a clearer understanding of CBD products, THC content, the interaction of these substances in the body, and the potential "unintended consequences" of use while driving.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Impairment in Transportation.

TRB Webinar: Centering Seams – Maintaining Centerline Joints in Asphalt Pavements February 17, 2021 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Deteriorating centerline joints are a maintenance challenge for many highway agencies. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to explore centerline joint practices used by transportation agencies. Presenters will identify ways to reduce the need for maintenance and improve the maintenance activity itself. Presenters will also discuss innovative practices to improve centerline joint performance and maintenance.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Pavement Maintenance.

TRB Webinar: A Two-Way Ticket – Collaborative Planning Among Airports & Public Agencies February 18, 2021 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00

How important is it for airports and public agencies to collaborate? TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, February 18, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss these collaboration efforts. Public-use airports, metropolitan planning organizations, and local land-use/ transportation planning agencies all have independent yet interrelated planning processes. Presenters will provide examples of collaborative partnering among airport and surface transportation planning organizations. They will share case studies of where such planning has occurred and lessons learned from these experiences. Presenters will also introduce a self-assessment tool that allows managers and staff to identify current challenges with collaborative planning and strategies to enhance it.

The webinar features research from ACRP Report 216: Guidebook for Assessing Collaborative Planning Efforts Among Airport and Public Planning Agencies.

TRB Webinar: Using Artificial Intelligence to Predict Deterioration of Highway Bridges February 22, 2021 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Often, advanced sensor technologies can assess highway bridge infrastructure. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, February 22, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to explore how artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) may be used to predict the deterioration of bridges. Presenters will discuss recent case studies related to the application of AI in integrating highway data to better explain and predict system performance. They will also identify how AI and DL may improve sensor signal data, and explain how these technologies can provide support design, operations, and management of highway systems.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Testing and Evaluation of Transportation Structures.

TRB Webinar: Retrospective, Perspective, & Prospective of Transit-Oriented Development February 25, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 1.50 0.00

How can transit-oriented development (TOD) shape urban development? TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 11:00 AM -12:30 PM Eastern to examine TOD effects. Presenters will review transit’s historical, contemporary, and future role in urban development. They will also discuss the impacts of TOD on travel behavior, real estate prices, residential location, urban form, and community life. Finally, presenters will identify policy issues and decision-support tools of TOD planning as well as technologies to assist in TOD further development.
