TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program
(NCHRP)’s Report 785
: Performance-Based Analysis of Geometric Design of Highways and Streets. This webinar will present two significant steps in advancing multimodal design of highways and streets: incorporating performance-based analysis into the project development process, and developing a comprehensive, flexible design process that considers the context of the facility and the performance of various modes. Presenters will also discuss an update to AASHTO’s Guidelines for Geometric Design of Very Low-Volume Roads, NCHRP Report 839
: A Performance-Based Highway Geometric Design Process.
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 2.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual.
