Security is important to consider when designing and building transportation infrastructure. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM Eastern to illustrate deployment strategies for implementing infrastructure-based security practices. Presenters will describe case studies from Minnesota and Idaho to demonstrate successful security measures. They will also discuss how to make bridges more secure, and will present the Security Implementation Tool that state departments of transportation (DOTs) can use to benchmark and plan security parameters.

This webinar was organized by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Critical Infrastructure Protection. It also features research from NCHRP Research Report 525: Security 101: A Physical Security Primer for Transportation Agencies and NCHRP Research Report 793: Incorporating Transportation Security Awareness into Routine State DOT Operations and Training.
