Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, April 15, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET to discuss how state departments of transportation may utilize the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Water Model. Accurate, timely, and reliable forecasts are necessary for transportation decision makers to make informed decisions on re-routing traffic or closing roadways if flooding is imminent. Presenters will discuss how to integrate this model into transportation management or maintenance operations in order to monitor road weather and flooding conditions.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Surface Transportation Weather.
