The Highway Geology Symposium is coming up at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, in Portland, Oregon on October 21 – 24, 2019. The conference will kick off with a TRB Mid-Year Meeting sponsored by AFP10 – Engineering Geology Committee.
On Monday at 1:00 pm, the half-day session titled Looking Ahead at Informed Decision-making for Engineering Geologists will begin. The ability to process large amounts of data allows engineering geologists access to information not easily obtained just a few years ago. How are we using this information to advance the practice of investigation, design, planning and management? Selected presentations at the 2019 TRB Midyear Session will be on the topic of increased use of data in day to day decisions, as well as long term planning. An open discussion will follow the presentations.
Visit the Highway Geology Symposium website for more details or to register. We hope to see you in Portland!
