TRB conducted a webinar on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that featured a report from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program
(NCHRP). The webinar explored NCHRP Synthesis 470: Maintenance Quality Assurance Field Inspection Practices

Capabilities of Maintenance Quality Assurance (MQA) programs have evolved as data collection and analysis technology has improved and transportation agencies have become more customer focused.
