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.”
