What’s the return on investment with using geotechnical investigation in transportation projects? TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will examine how geotechnology may help improve ROI. Presenters will identify the benefits of several geotechnical methods, including in-situ measurement techniques, remote sensing, and visualization tools. They will also discuss how to quantify these benefits to owners and agencies.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Geotechnical Instrumentation and Modeling.

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