Event description

The forecasted changes in precipitation and temperature associated with climate change are expected to create impacts to resource roads that will affect the performance of infrastructure. Increased flooding, landslides and erosion can adversely impact the function or service life of roads and infrastructure while more frequent mid-winter thaws and rain-on-snow events, for example, will have a broader impact on operational planning and road construction standards.
This webinar will present the anticipated climate change impacts on resource roads, outline a methodology to assess risk and vulnerability and will highlight operational practices to reduce resource road risks to climate change.
