TRB Webinar: Enhancing Monarch Butterfly Habitats Along Roadway Corridors June 03, 2020 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Monarch butterflies rely on roadside corridors for essential nectar sources and milkweed. TRB is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM Eastern that will discuss how transportation managers may enhance roadside areas for monarchs and other pollinators. This webinar will identify the current state of knowledge about monarchs’ use of roadside rights-of-ways and associated risks. Presenters will describe two tools roadside managers can use to assess monarch habitats. These tools include a Landscape Prioritization Model to identify roadsides with the greatest potential for monarch conservation, and a Roadside Monarch Habitat Evaluator, which takes data from a rapid assessment protocol that automatically calculates monarch habitat quality. The presenters will also share management support materials and present case studies regarding the success of programs in transportation departments with pollinator habitat programs.

This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 942: Evaluating the Suitability of Roadway Corridors for Use by Monarch Butterflies.

TRB Webinar: Bearing with Bridges – Bearings and Expansion Joints on Highway Bridges June 18, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Damage to expansion joints on bridge decks costs U.S. highway agencies millions of dollars each year. TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 18, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will identify ways to mitigate these damages and costs. Of specific concern are the bearings below the joint in a bridge. A bearing assembly that is frozen or damaged due to deterioration caused by inadequate joints may overstress the bridge components, which may result in potentially costly repairs. Presenters will discuss current methods for designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating bridge joints and bearings that may mitigate many damages. They will also examine various details for several types of bridges.

This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Domestic Scan Program 17-03: Experiences in the Performance of Bridge Bearings and Expansion Joints Used for Highway Bridges.
