BOSTON, Mass. — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will host a virtual transportation webinar on the "Standards & Design for Stream Crossings & Geomorphic Compatibility."
The webinar is scheduled to be held on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 2:00 p.m. via Zoom and will be open to the general public at no cost.
The webinar will focus on the latest technical developments in the MassDOT Highway Division’s approach to stream crossings and resilient design using the principals of fluvial geomorphology.

The upcoming webinar is part of a new Innovation Webinar Series being offered by MassDOT, with the support of the UMass Transportation Center at UMass Amherst, to highlight some of the latest innovations in transportation. The series will include a variety of topics related to technology and other innovations including cross-agency collaborations and partnerships.
All transportation practitioners from federal, state, regional, and local transportation agencies, transit agencies, academia, and private industry are invited to attend these free sessions. Registrants are invited to come with their stream-crossing questions and share examples of the successes and challenges/obstacles they have faced with regard to this topic.
