Event Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss how transportation planners can adapt to the changes in natural systems. Coastal states are suffering increased rates of flooding from gradual changes in sea level and hurricanes. State departments of transportation and local infrastructure agencies often struggle to keep up with these increased rates of flooding. Presenters will discuss the latest projections of sea level rise and the changing understanding about storm events. They will also describe adaptive planning techniques to these changes through case studies from transportation corridors in California and Georgia. Presenters will identify how to use predictive modeling to plan for more resilient transportation infrastructure, determine how to use adaptive management techniques, and highlight permitting issues that arise when infrastructure adaptation meets ecosystem needs.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Ecology and Transportation.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
