Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Synthesis Report 529: How Transportation Agencies Assess the Value of Added Capacity Highway Projects Versus Other Modal Projects and Strategies.

This webinar will discuss how state departments of transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) assess the benefits and costs of adding highway capacity versus other modal projects and services. Highway capacity refers to expanding existing facilities or constructing new ones. This assessment is typically conducted by state DOTs and MPOs at specific points in the planning and programming processes, representing distinct phases at which agency actions are formulated based on varying degrees of specificity related to alternative evaluation. The presenter will identify similarities and differences in the assessment of projects and services at various points throughout the project. He will also describe the program development timeline.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar.  Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
