Extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and flooding, increase the degradation of asphalt pavements. These impacts to transportation infrastructure have significantly increased over the last few decades and asphalt pavements have had to become more resilient as a result. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM Eastern that will address the impact of climate change and weather events on the performance and degradation of asphalt pavements. Presenters will offer strategies for materials and methods to use in the design, production, and construction of pavements that will be resilient and flexible enough to withstand the elements.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Asphalt Mixture Evaluation and Performance. It follows Lecturn Session 1401 Resilience of Asphalt Pavement Structures as presented at TRB’s 2022 Annual Meeting.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information. Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
