(SR250) EDC II - High Friction Surface Treatment, Introduction to Local Agencies in California
5/23/2013 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Every Day Counts (EDC) is designed to identify and deploy innovation aimed at shortening project delivery, accelerating technology, and innovative deployment. This is the second wave of innovations for its Every Day Counts initiative: EDC II. Teams from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will work with our state, local, and industry partners to deploy the initiatives and will develop performance measures to gauge their success.
High Friction Surface Treatment (HFST) is an emerging technology that dramatically and immediately reduces crashes and the related injuries and fatalities. With friction demands far exceeding conventional pavement friction numbers, high-quality aggregate is applied to existing or potential high-crash areas with a polymer resin to help motorists maintain better control in dry and wet driving conditions.
Join the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and FHWA in this webinar to find out more about this technology, how to determine areas for its use and how to implement HFST on your roadways.
