TRB Webinar: How construction history may enhance a pavement management system April 09, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Pavement management systems rely on a lot of data, which is essential to evaluating pavements. TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 9 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will explore how construction history data, such as pavement maintenance, preservation, and rehabilitation activities, may enhance pavement management. Presenters will discuss how construction history data impacts the evaluation of project-specific treatments, helps identify potential design or materials issues, and can be used to calibrate pavement performance condition models. A further complication is that non-pavement management staff often maintain construction history, so presenters will also discuss how to obtain, integrate, and coordinate with maintenance and construction offices.

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