TRB 93rd Annual Meeting
Transportation professionals from around the world will gather to share perspectives on current developments in transportation research, policy, and practice. The conference will feature more than 4,000 presentations in nearly 750 sessions and workshops. The spotlight theme for 2014 is “Celebrating Our Legacy, Anticipating Our Future.”
LTPP InfoPave Public Release Session
FHWA’s LTPP program will introduce LTPP InfoPave at this TRB Annual Meeting session. The new Web-based system will allow users to more easily tap into pavement data available from the LTPP program. Participants will learn how to use the system to obtain data for analysis, as well as how the program simplifies the LTPP database.
