TRB Webinar: Rapid Scenario Planning: Freeway Facilities Analysis Using the HCM July 29, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, July 29, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that provides updates to the latest version of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Sixth Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analysis, which will be released next year.  HCM is commonly used by transportation agencies to evaluate and forecast operations of roadway facilities. It may also be used to cost-effectively and reliably support agencies’ planning, programming, and management decisions.

This webinar will provide an overview of the HCM freeway facilities methodology. This methodology integrates all freeway segment methods in the HCM (basic, merge, diverge, and weaving segments) into a multi time-period analysis framework that tracks queue build-up and dissipation over a 24-hour period.  It provides similar performance measures to a microsimulation analysis, but with shorter turnaround time and a streamlined calibration process. Once a facility has been set up and calibrated, the method supports a Rapid Scenario Planning process, which generates scenario-specific results and sensitivity analyses within minutes, allowing for near real-time decision support for freeway analysis projects. The presenter will provide case study applications of the method, including evaluation of capital improvements, transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) strategies, and work zones from multiple states.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service.

TRB Webinar: Limitations of the Infiltration Approach to Stormwater Management August 15, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Stormwater management practitioners are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide guidance for determining appropriate siting and design of stormwater infiltration practices based on the limitations, risks, and benefits in the context of the built and natural environments. The practice of mitigating roadway runoff through infiltration has increased in recent years because of its ability to reduce stormwater volume, increase groundwater recharge, and reduce peak flows and pollutant transport. Some state departments of transportation are required to use infiltration practices for their roadway projects unless infiltration is proven infeasible. This webinar will address a broad range of issues associated with choosing and siting infiltration practices for mitigating roadway stormwater limitations, including effects of climate, soils, topography, geology, vegetation, and land use. Presenters will also discuss pollutants of concern on surface water and groundwater quality; effects on surface water and groundwater quantity; and conditions under which full, partial, and no or incidental infiltration would be feasible. They will also identify gaps in the body of knowledge and discuss options for improving the effectiveness and reducing risks.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Stormwater.

TRB Webinar: Use of Life Cycle Assessment in Public Procurement: State of Practice August 20, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Pavement designers are invited to a TRB webinar on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will highlight current efforts across United States’ departments of transportation to integrate Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)-based instruments into the project procurement process, including Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). The use of EPDs varies between different environments depending on what is required and desired. There are no requirements at the federal level, but the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Sustainable Pavements Program has led the development and dissemination of tools to support the use of LCA in project procurement. At the state level, different areas of the country have different requirements and plans in places to adopt EPDs. The webinar will address the varying requirements at different levels of government and how different departments of transportation handle their own LCAs. Presenters will highlight their experiences from both organizational and technical perspectives, focusing on the challenges and opportunities they encounter as LCA-based approaches start to inform project procurement.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on General and Emerging Pavement Design.

TRB Webinar: Not Your Average Analysis – Introducing Travel Time Reliability in the HCM August 22, 2019 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Traffic operations and management practitioners are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, August 22, 2019, from 1:00-2:30 PM. This webinar will discuss travel time reliability estimation methods in the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Sixth Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analysis. The HCM is commonly used by transportation agencies to evaluate and forecast operations of roadway facilities.  The current version was released in late 2016.

Travel time reliability aims to quantify the variation of travel time and is defined using the entire range of travel times for a given trip, for a selected time period (for example, the peak period on weekday afternoons), and over a selected horizon (for example, a year). Measuring travel time reliability requires that a sufficient history of travel times be present to track travel time performance. The HCM enables analysts to estimate reliability when insufficient historical data is available or to predict the impacts of highway improvements and advanced operations strategies on reliability. Presenters will describe how to apply travel time reliability methods to the analysis of freeways, and urban streets.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service. It is the third in a series of webinars about the HCM. The first two were conducted on June 10, 2019 and July 29, 2019.

TRB Webinar: Roundabout Implementation Experience - Overcoming Challenges August 29, 2019 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

Traffic design engineers are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, August 29, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET. The webinar will provide guidance that overcomes challenges of roundabout implementation and provides successful outcomes. During the last ten years, the roundabout implementation experience started to show how transferable a concept or design is to many locations. Existing research and guidance shares these basic concepts, but there is very little real-world experience to help decision-makers with these applications within the roadway network. Facing challenges with the public, design, signals and operations, traffic design engineers may use case studies, modeling assumptions, and traffic models to assist decision-makers in seeing the possibilities of a roundabout and address the challenges they are often concerned about.

This webinar features a presentation on modeling insights and shares two individual case studies of roundabout intersections at locations where the implementation experience played a significant role in achieving success for the roundabout. Presenters will also discuss how engineers may assist decision-makers in looking at their previously held assumptions about roundabouts and instead view them as a valuable tool in traffic design.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Roundabouts.
