The transportation industry faces a wide range of plausible future scenarios that may affect standard practices over the next 30 to 50 years. Because the range of possibilities over such a long-term period is quite broad, making a focused prediction of the implications for highway infrastructure preservation, maintenance, and renewal (PMR) is quite challenging. TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern that will examine some of the long-term strategic issues affecting transportation agencies. Presenters will identify how to prepare for plausible future scenarios by discussing a pathway to guide transportation agencies in advancing the implementation of emerging PMR practices.

This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 750: Strategic Issues Facing Transportation, Volume 7: Preservation, Maintenance, and Renewal of Highway Infrastructure. This report is the seventh and final report in the Foresight Series.

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