TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Report 159: Pavement Maintenance Guidelines for General Aviation Airport Management and Research Report 178: Guidance for Usage of Permeable Pavement at Airports.

This webinar will discuss the development of a web-based airport pavement maintenance recommendation tool and the tool’s use in helping general aviation personnel choose the appropriate treatment based on the conditions, climate, and the Federal Aviation Administration’s airport classification of the facility. The presenters will also provide guidance on applying permeable pavements at airports.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into to view registration information.
