Performance-Based Practical Design: Integration into Transportation Projects and Agency Practice is pleased to present a free webinar entitled "Performance-Based Practical Design: Integration into Transportation Projects and Agency Practice." This webinar explores how two state departments of transportation are integrating performance-based practical design into their projects and agency practices in order to cut costs, reduce impacts on the environment and communities, and promote livability.

The webinar, held on Thursday, November 19, 2015 from 3:00PM to 4:30PM EST, is brought to you by FHWA, in partnership with the Project for Public Spaces and Sevatec.

The performance-based practical design (PBPD) process relies on engineering judgement and performance-analysis tools to ensure that projects are addressing core purposes, needs, and context over narrow adherence to design values. Building on a previous webinar, this webinar includes presentations from Washington State DOT and Oregon DOT, two leaders on this topic.
