“TRB [Transportation Research Board] will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that discusses the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST)’s approach toward the implementation of resilience in transportation projects.  The discussion on resilience at the scientific, practical, economic, and policy level has evolved recently, and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act has requirements with which the transportation community must comply. This webinar will discuss the benefit-cost analysis (BCA) and economic analysis that may help assess the benefits associated with transportation resilience projects.  The presenters will also discuss a case study where a project was implemented in a manner consistent with the NIST Community Resilience Planning Guide.”
