Pavement resilience is an increasing critical consideration for highway and transportation engineers. Extreme weather events require that pavement design, preservation, and maintenance all incorporate resilience. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern that will bring together stakeholders to discuss and identify strategies. Presenters will highlight climate stressors, share their experiences, and identify gaps and needs. Presenters are from state departments of transportation (DOT) that have participated in a recent pilot study, incorporating climate risks into their Transportation Asset Management Plans.

This webinar is a follow up to the TRB Workshop: Progress Toward Resilient Pavement at the 2022 Annual Meeting and the TRB Webinar: Progress Toward Resilient Pavement held on November 9, 2021.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committees on Design and Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements, Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements, and on Extreme Weather and Climate Change Adaptation.

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.

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