As focus changes toward the asset management of our existing infrastructure, the value of maintaining and managing our embankment and cut slopes becomes more apparent. This course provides the essentials to slope maintenance and slide restoration for transportation field personnel with an asset management perspective. This course is not meant to be highly technical, and explains, conceptually and in layman's terms, the conditions and factors affecting slope movement, stability and deterioration, and the cost considerations of maintenance, stabilization and of slope failures. The course also provides the fundamental aspects of slope management systems and discusses the rationale of slope management considering the legal implications of slope failures and rock fall.
The target audience for this course includes a wide range of transportation personnel consisting of Federal, State and local maintenance, geotechnical, operations and asset management engineers, geologists, managers, supervisors and personnel involved in assessing, maintaining, managing and repairing cut-slopes, fill-slopes and associated features. Although the potential audience of this course is wide-ranging, the course is primarily provided for the State maintenance specialists.
