Presenter: Glen Legere, FPInnovations

Canadian resource road networks, composed primarily of unpaved roads, provide year-round access for sectors such as forestry, energy and mining, as well as general public access for remote communities and recreation. 

Maintaining safe and reliable access to these roads in a cost-effective way is a huge challenge. The level of maintenance, such as grading and resurfacing, will vary for each road and is strongly dependent on factors such as traffic volume, road surfacing quality, season of use and climate. 


Resource roads are an important asset and should be managed with a long-term vision while incorporating life-cycle costing analysis (LCCA) principals where transportation and maintenance costs are optimized. 

This webinar will discuss road surface distress and failure modes, cost-benefits of LCCA and tools for planning, monitoring and managing resource road maintenance.

And all of this for only $25!
