Winter Road Maintenance in a Changing Climate
Thursday, January 19th 2017
11:00 am – 12:00 pm PST
For many Canadian communities winter weather is a matter of high concern as considerable resources are devoted to snow and ice control. There have been concerns that climate change could have a negative impact on snow and ice control planning and expenditures.
In response to these concerns, a research project was conducted to assess the current practices and vulnerabilities, as well as provide projections of future impacts and vulnerabilities for winter road maintenance in the City of Prince George. Lindsay Matthews from the University of Waterloo, a partner in the project, will be speaking about the research findings.
