Towards Sustainable Pavement Systems Webinar Series - Sustainable Strategies for Concrete Pavements: Materials, Design, Construction

  • June 25 from 1 - 3 p.m. EDT

The FHWA launched the Sustainable Pavements Program in 2010 to advance the knowledge and practice of sustainability related to pavements. The overall objective of the program is to increase the awareness, visibility, and the body of knowledge of sustainability considerations in all phases of the pavement life cycle. Under that program, the FHWA has completed the technical resource publication “Towards Sustainable Pavement Systems: A Reference Document” (FHWA-HIF-15-002), and is now delivering a series of five webinars to help implement and promote key elements of pavement sustainability.

Topics: Sustainability implications of asphalt paving materials, aggregates, design and construction considerations, emerging trends

Cost: Free

Tools for Analysis of Capacity and Efficient Flow for Roundabout Design: Part III

  • July 14 from 2 - 4 p.m. EST

The Transportation Research Board will conduct a webinar on July 14, 2015, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm ET that will cover SYNCHRO, Sim Traffic, and TransModeler— three software packages used by states for analyzing capacity and traffic flow necessary for efficient operation during the roundabout design phase. This is the third of a series of three webinars that will cover seven software packages (SIDRA Intersection, VISSIM, RODEL, ARCADY, SYNCHRO, SimTraffic, and TransModeler) used to analyze roundabouts.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Roundabouts.

Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees. A certificate for two Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual. This webinar is pending approval by the American Institute of Certified Planners for two Certification Maintenance Credits.

Cost: No fee for employees of TRB Sponsors or TRB Sustaining Affiliates who register using their work email address.
