Two AASHTO Webinars on Waterways

To all, if you are interested in discussing some of the Water Transportation issues, there are two webinars this week.

The theme of the SCOWT meeting is “Making the Case for Maritime in State DOTs.”  We encourage you to forward this link along to your colleagues in your respective DOT’s who may not necessarily be familiar with the marine transportation network, but might be quite interested in understanding how its operational challenges relate directly to the ability to operate highway networks for freight mobility.

 

Webinar 1:  Thursday, June 20th  1:00 PM EST – The AASHTO Waterborne Freight Bottom Line Report

Next in the series of AASHTO’s freight bottom line reports, SCOWT is pleased to release the Waterborne Freight Bottom line report, a comprehensive examination of the national marine transportation network, how it is a critical driver of freight mobility, and alternatives for action on how it must be maintained and improved for future economic competitiveness.  The report is also a critical education tool for advancing the Water Resources Development Act currently being debated in Congress.

Webinar 2:  Friday, June 21st  10:00 AM EST – Marine Navigation Impacts on State DOT’s

The marine transportation system moves tons of freight worth billions every year.  But what happens when it faces critical delays and infrastructure failures?  That freight moves onto highways and rail.  This session will examine how modal diversion and congestion must be planned for when the marine transportation system faces inevitable crises.
