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.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features a research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Legal Research Digest 30: Contract Risk Management for Airport Agreements and Legal Research Digest 31: Preemption of Worker Retention and Labor Peace Agreements at Airports.

This webinar will identify primary risks associated with common contracts used by airports of all sizes, including construction, concession, ground transportation, professional services, repair/maintenance, vendor/purchasing, software/IT agreements, and airline signatory agreements. The presenters will discuss methods to address, shift, or allocate associated risks using contractual provisions. This webinar will also provide an overview of issues related to labor-harmony or labor-peace agreements. Airports have a diverse labor force and are increasingly being asked to become involved in matters that historically were reserved for private employers to address with their own employees. These matters include setting minimum wage rates, establishing safety/training baselines, and requiring “labor-harmony” or “labor-peace” agreements at the subject airports.

TRB Webinar: Energetic Value: The Design and Economics of Microgrids at Airports March 20, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 91/Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Synthesis 137: Microgrids and Their Application for Airports and Public Transit.

The research describes microgrids that airports and public transit agencies can implement to increase the reliability and resilience of their critical infrastructure. A microgrid is described as a collection of controllable loads, on-site energy resources, local energy storage systems, and an overarching control system that is able to operate both in conjunction with, and separately from, the grid. Developments in control technologies have seen advanced microgrid controllers expand microgrid functionality, creating new value streams and revenue opportunities, and increasing microgrid viability to more sectors, including airports. This webinar will describe the benefits, challenges, costs, revenue streams, and ownership structures of microgrids that airports can apply to increase the resilience of their critical infrastructure.

TRB Webinar: Waterborne Traffic Paint Application, Materials Selection, and Testing March 26, 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, March 26, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss practices for applying pavement markings.  While pavement markings are a safety measure with a long history and broad use, there is a wide variety of practices, resulting in significant differences in paint quality from location to location. This webinar will present a case study of one state department of transportation that improved year-round maintained retroreflectivity of their waterborne traffic paint by focusing on quality and education. The presenters will also focus on materials testing for both paint and beads, and they will demonstrate how materials testing and selection processes may improve marking visibility.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM that will discuss how to adhere to Presidential Executive Order 13807, which focuses on expediting infrastructure projects by suggesting that National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) decisions should be made in two years. Furthermore, this order suggests that all federal decisions should be coordinated in a way that permits can be issued within ninety days of the NEPA decision. This webinar will describe practices that have already been applied as well as others for consideration that may help agencies achieve these goals for their transportation projects. Presenters will provide technical, legal, and policy insights to help implement the executive order.
