Transportation Research Board Webinar On Addressing Climate Change Challenges

 

The resilience of our transportation networks to future weather and climate extremes is mission-critical to our systems, services, and societies. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) hosts a webinar Transportation Resilience Addressing Climate Change Challenges on July 26, 2023, to “…highlight emerging evidence-based best practices on resilience planning, projects, recovery, processes, and programs.” Further, the presenters focus on understanding vulnerability and improving resilience to all forms of transportation.

During the webinar on climate change and transportation resilience, the presenters “…share efforts to integrate resilience in other aspects of the transportation sector…” across the total asset lifecycle, including planning and design, operations and maintenance (O&M), and asset and emergency management. Also, the webinar supports TRB’s Transportation Resilience 2023 conference on how to adapt transportation networks to climate change and extreme weather impacts.

Learning objectives of the webinar on climate change challenges include: prioritizing and evaluating new methods and the performance on resilience investments; sharing approaches for integrating climate resilience into agency processes, design standards, and standards of practice; and, developing a shared understanding of transportation resilience concepts and state of practice. The webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Extreme Weather and Climate Adaptation.

Transportation Research Board on Climate Change and Resilient Roadways

Climate change is increasing the intensity, frequency, and extent of hurricanes, floods, and numerous other extreme weather events. As a result, transportation infrastructure is degrading at an accelerated rate and must be more resilient. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) hosts a webinar that addresses the impact of climate change and weather events on transportation infrastructure, focusing on the performance and degradation of asphalt pavements. During the webinar, the presenters propose strategies for materials and methods to use in the design, production, and construction of asphalt pavements, to be more resilient and flexible to withstand extreme weather events.

The webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Asphalt Mixture Evaluation and Performance, following Session 1401 Resilience of Asphalt Pavement Structures presented at the TRB 2022 Annual Meeting. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is a division of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which serves as an independent adviser to the President of the United States, the Congress, and federal agencies. Further, the TRB “…provides leadership in transportation improvements and innovation through trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based information exchange, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation.”
