Unstable slopes affect almost every state transportation department in all types of geographies. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, November 23, 2020 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern that will explore the geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring technologies that are used to inform safety, operational, and treatment decisions for these slopes. Presenters will discuss technology advancements that are creating positive outcomes across many systems. They will identify how these advancements may improve safety for workers and travelers, reduce operational disruptions from unstable slopes, and optimize cost and risk tolerance decisions over the life-cycle.
This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis Report 554: Advances in Unstable Slope Instrumentation and Monitoring.
