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.

 

The webinar takes place on Wednesday, April 29th
at 2:00p.m. EST, and will be presented by Glen Legere of FPInnovations. The
cost of the webinar is just $25, which will give you access to the live
presentation as well as a link to the presentation to watch the content in the
future. Canadian Forest Industries
magazine, Rock to Road’s sister
publication, is hosting the webinar.
