Climate Resilient Measures for Roads and Other Infrastructure

When:  Apr 23, 2024 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (MT)

Presented by: Gordon Keller, PE, GE & Mark Weinhold, PE

Billions of dollars in damage have been sustained and many lives lost from climate-related storms and fires in recent years. The objective of this webinar is to present some of the road and infrastructure measures that can reasonably be implemented to reduce the vulnerability or likelihood of damage from
natural disasters. Current road maintenance and attention to thorough drainage detail are critical to avoid concentration of water on roads and prevent damage. Properly designed culverts with conservative capacity and measures to prevent plugging or stream diversion are needed. Stream simulation designed culverts that match natural channel characteristics offer resilience against storms. Various slope stabilization and erosion control measures can be particularly useful to add resilience to roads and prevent landslides, debris flows, and other types of storm damage.
