Learn how to take the next step in using pavement data with an upcoming Webinar in the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) free Innovations series, "PaveSuite: Transforming Pavement Data into Informed Decisionmaking." The session is scheduled for November 17, 2011, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. (eastern standard time). The ongoing Innovations series is designed to bring representatives from State and local transportation agencies, industry, academia, and others timely information on today's highway technology advances. This series is hosted by FHWA's National Highway Institute (NHI), in conjunction with the FHWA Highways for LIFE program and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO) Technology Implementation Group (TIG).
Developed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), PaveSuite is a collection of advanced tools for performing faster and more comprehensive pavement analysis. The tools provide critical information to support data-driven decisionmaking and the selection of cost-effective strategies to rehabilitate and preserve existing highway infrastructure while ensuring safety. PaveSuite was selected as a 2011 focus technology by the AASHTO TIG.
The Webinar will highlight PaveSuite's four advanced pavement evaluation technologies:
Featured speakers will include Hyung Lee, a Pavement Performance Engineer with FDOT, Abdenour Nazef, a Pavement Evaluation Engineer for FDOT, and N. Mike Jackson, Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.
