Date: Wednesday, September 27, 2:00–3:15 p.m. EST
Speaker: Richard P. Schweitzer, PLLC

Over the last few years, there have been numerous changes to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) trucking hours of service (HoS) regulations. Although FMCSA’s HoS regulations are only applicable to interstate transport, many state agencies apply them for intrastate transport as well. In December 2017, the agency’s newest requirement for electronic logging devices (ELDs) goes into effect for most drivers of commercial motor vehicles. Although some construction sectors have been afforded relief from some HoS requirements, NAPA petitioned FMCSA for additional relief which is under agency review with comments currently being accepted.

 Learning Objectives:

Learn from an industry expert about what is currently required under the HoS regulation and how to comment on the need for additional relief.

  • Existing driver hours of service requirements and short-haul exemptions
  • Electronic Logging Device rule and CVSA enforcement policy
  • NAPA petition for exemption from 30-minute rest break and 12 hour rule
  • FMCSA safety fitness rating metrics, National Academy of Sciences study on FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System, and FMCSA response
  • FMCSA pilot program on eliminating non-fault crashes from carriers’ records
  • Diabetes, sleep apnea and other medical qualification issues
  • Drug and alcohol clearinghouse final rule implementation

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speaker: Dr. Kevin Hall, Ph.D., P.E.,  University of Arkansas

Flexible pavement design has undergone numerous changes since the AASHO Road Test a half-century ago. This webinar will detail how flexible pavements work to carry traffic and how this impacts design considerations. Some details on mechanistic-empirical design will be covered, too, but the primary purpose of this webinar is to provide a basic understanding of the AASHTO 93 Design Guide and how to apply it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify and describe key factors considered in structural pavement design;
  • Select appropriate input values and perform calculations necessary to estimate required pavement thickness using current AASHTO procedures;
  • Optimize thickness design to produce the most cost-effective pavement structure;
  • Discuss general design principles of mechanistic-empirical pavement design.

Speaker:  Buzz Powell, National Center for Asphalt Technologies at Auburn University

A successful overlay starts with identifying and correcting deficiencies in the existing pavement surface and structure. This webinar will demonstrate how to recognize different types and severities of pavement distresses through the use of the LTPP distress identification manual, as well as explain how to conduct pavement forensic analyses to determine why pavement distresses have occurred so they can be corrected.
