Protecting transportation corridor mobility from the dangers of geohazards is mission critical work. In times of natural disaster or emergency, this work is vital to ensure the flow of critical supplies and mobility of first responders. This webinar will present geohazard mitigation case studies from earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods, with a brief discussion about how lessons learned from previous natural disasters relate to the current national emergency.

What you’ll learn:

  • The definition of “critical infrastructure”
  • The importance of maintenance continuity
  • Common geohazard challenges following natural disasters
  • Innovative geohazard repair solutions
  • Innovative contracting mechanisms for pre-disaster planning and post-disaster recovery

*Registration is limited to the first 500 attendees
