TRB Webinar: Assessing the Value of Added Highway Capacity Projects January 23, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Synthesis Report 529: How Transportation Agencies Assess the Value of Added Capacity Highway Projects Versus Other Modal Projects and Strategies.

This webinar will discuss how state departments of transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (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.

TRB Webinar: Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis and Risk-Based Prioritization February 04, 2019 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, February 4, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Research Report 893: Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis.

This webinar will describe how transportation agencies can utilize a systemic approach to pedestrian safety by outlining its process and needs. A systemic approach, as opposed to a “hot-spot” approach, enables transportation agencies to identify, prioritize, and select appropriate countermeasures for locations with a high risk of pedestrian-related crashes. Presenters will discuss how some jurisdictions have begun to collect and analyze data types, how they have dealt with constraints, and how they have incorporated systemic approaches into their safety programs. They will also share examples of databases, screening tools, and systemic prioritization processes.

TRB Webinar: More Than Recycling - Best Practices in Airport Waste Management February 05, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Synthesis 92: Airport Waste Management and Recycling Practices.

This webinar will discuss strategies that airports are implementing to reduce waste. Practicing sustainable waste management at an airport can reduce environmental impacts, conserve natural and financial resources, and provide social benefits for the community. In recent years, the airport industry has established a baseline of effective recycling activities and is now exploring new strategies for rescuing food, reducing waste generation at the source, and increasing diversion of other materials from landfills. The presenters will highlight specific programs in action at facilities across the country. 

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

TRB Webinar: Adapting Shoreline Infrastructure to Sea Level Rise and Extreme Events February 06, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that 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.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Ecology and Transportation.

TRB Webinar: Contracting Commuter Rail Services February 12, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 200: Contracting Commuter Rail Services, Volume 2: Commuter Rail System Profiles.

This webinar will provide an introduction to the guidebook in Volume 1 and an overview of the commuter rail systems in North America profiled in Volume 2. The presenters will discuss the various approaches that exist for providing commuter rail. They will also identify factors that influence these different approaches. and 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.

This webinar is sponsored by the Transit Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

TRB Webinar: Traffic Bottleneck Identification and Solutions February 19, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss strategies for bottleneck identification, diagnosis, and mitigation. Traffic bottlenecks in the United States are worsening, and states must manage their bottleneck problems with minimal funding. Therefore, it is necessary to demonstrate a return on investment regarding bottleneck mitigation strategies. The presenter will identify how bottleneck intensity and frequency can be precisely determined in ways that account for visibility and weather. He will evaluate low-cost bottleneck mitigation strategies, identify bottleneck treatments, and discuss the Congestion and Bottleneck Identification (CBI) tool.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on the Operational Effects of Geometrics.
