Friction management can help address the rising number of fatalities and serious injuries on roadways. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, June 11, 2024 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that covered the implementation of a friction management program, the analysis and interpretation of continuous friction data, development of safety performance functions, the implementation of a safety system approach and the shared responsibilities within a department of transportation to address this topic.
This webinar was related to the 2024 TRB Annual Meeting Workshop 1024: Pavement Friction Management, Continuous Pavement Friction Management, and Safety Analysis.
This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Pavement Surface Properties and Vehicle Interaction.
