TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, February 5, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Report 855: An Expanded Functional Classification System for Highways and Streets.

This webinar will identify potential improvements to the traditional functional classification system of streets and highways in order to incorporate the context, user needs, and functions of the roadway facility. Presenters will discuss the Expanded Functional Classification System, which provides a multimodal design approach that accommodates drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians at both a corridor level and system-wide.
