TRB Webinar: Rail in the Time of Coronavirus - Planning, Operating, & Constructing Rail December 02, 2020 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

How are passenger rail planners and operators adapting in the time of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19)? TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern that will feature case studies from the public and private sectors. Representatives from each organization will discuss how COVID-19 has (or has not) affected their efforts. They will discuss where their projects are in development and how planning has proceeded during COVID-19. Since passenger rail services have been curtailed, projects under development could also be affected. Rail operators have had to create new rules to keep workers and passengers safe. Presenters will discuss the progress of their programs during COVID-19 and identify lessons learned in order for operators and agencies to move forward with passenger rail projects.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Passenger Rail Transportation.

TRB Webinar: Planning an Effective Airport Deicing Runoff Management Program December 08, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00

Airports must maintain compliance with environmental regulations associated with deicing operations. TRB is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss a planning approach for deicing operations at airports, based upon application of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in an adaptive management framework. Presenters will describe five categories of BMPs: aircraft deicing source reduction, airfield pavement deicing source reduction, deicing stormwater runoff containment and collection, deicing runoff treatment and recycling, and deicing runoff system components.

The webinar features research from ACRP Research Report 14: Deicing Planning Guidelines and Practices for Stormwater Management Systems, Second Edition.


TRB Webinar: Specifying Clay and Gravel for Road Surfacing December 09, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

There is a need for realistic specifications for clay and gravel road surfacing on low-volume roads. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will identify specifications for clay content of gravel roads. The presenters will describe a mix design and test method for determining optimal amounts. They will also provide examples of ways low-volume road agencies have obtained better performing gravel roads.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Low Volume Roads.

TRB Webinar: Cross-Cutting Issues in Urban Congestion Pricing December 10, 2020 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 2.00 0.00

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has resulted in a decline in transportation revenues and a slow rebound in transit ridership. Thus, there has been an increased interest in urban congestion pricing to ease congestion, encourage alternate modes, and generate revenue. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, December 10, 2020 from 1:00-3:00 PM Eastern that will describe current congestion pricing programs, including through existing U.S. Federal Highway Administration (USFHWA) programs and those that are under reauthorization consideration. Presenters will discuss approaches to congestion pricing in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. They will address the impact of pricing programs on congestion management, equity consideration, and transit service coordination. Additionally, presenters will identify implementation approaches, how to secure stakeholder buy-in, and how to conduct public outreach.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Economics, Revenue, and Finance.
