Collecting pavement condition data is essential for managing airport pavements and ensuring safe operations. However, the availability of guidance for airports to be able to collect, apply, and maintain pavement condition data has not kept pace with rapid changes in technologies. TRB is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will explore how pavement condition data are used and managed by airports. Presenters will provide guidance about how to distinguish differing techniques and discuss the associated decisions related to these practices. They will also identify new technologies and the future of pavement data collection.

The webinar features research from ACRP Research Report 203: Guidelines for Collecting, Applying, and Maintaining Pavement Condition Data at Airports.
