Abstract
Au Canada, on prévoit que les changements climatiques auront une incidence considérable sur l'industrie forestière. Les routes d'accès sont particulièrement vulnérables aux effets immédiats et à court terme des changements climatiques. Des stratégies d'adaptation pour les routes d'accès et les infrastructures doivent être élaborées et leur mise en œuvre doit commencer, afin de s'assurer que les infrastructures routières nécessaires pour accéder à la forêt soient maintenues et résistent aux effets des changements climatiques. Ce rapport présente les risques et la vulnérabilité des routes d'accès aux changements climatiques, ainsi que des méthodes et pratiques recommandées pour s'y adapter.

Abstract
The changes to climatic conditions in Canada are anticipated to have a significant impact on the Canadian forest industry. Resource roads are considered particularly vulnerable to the immediate and short-term impacts of climate change. Adaptation strategies for resource roads and infrastructure must be developed and implementation initiated to ensure that the road infrastructure required for forest access is maintained and made resilient to climatic impacts. This report presents the risks and vulnerabilities of resource roads to climate change and suggested adaptation methods and practices.

Abstract
Pour une performance optimale, la couche d’usure d’une route (« surface de roulement ») devrait être constituée de granulats appropriés. FERIC a examiné les caractéristiques des matériaux de couche d’usure utilisés par plusieurs compagnies membres dans l’est du Canada et a comparé les résultats obtenus avec les spécifications des compagnies et celles des ministères des transports provinciaux. La plupart des granulats ne rencontraient aucun des deux types de spécifications. Le rapport décrit les caractéristiques des granulats convenables pour une couche d’usure et formule des recommandations de spécifications adéquates en vue d’améliorer la performance de la route.

Abstract
Le présent rapport donne des estimations détaillées des coûts actuels, à destination, des bois ronds de qualité sciage et de qualité pâte, de même que des coûts de la biomasse forestière récoltée dans un système intégré à la récolte des bois ronds. Trois systèmes différents ont été étudiés: la récolte par arbres entiers jusqu'en bordure de route, la récolte par bois tronçonnés intégrés au déchiquetage d'arbres entiers, et la récolte par bois tronçonnés. Les études ont eu lieu dans deux types de sites représentatifs:un site résineux boréal et un site mélangé acadien. Les résultats sont présentés en $/m3 et en $/tmv (tonne métrique verte) pour les bois ronds ainsi que pour la biomasse et du taux d'utilisation des machines produisant la biomasse sont analysés. D'autres facteurs qui affectent la viabilité de la biomasse forestière comme source économique d'énergie font l'objet d'une discussion.

Abstract
Les systèmes de contrôle de pression (TPCS) ou de gonflement central des pneus (CTI) deviennent de plus en plus populaires dans les opérations forestières canadiennnes comme moyen d'accroître la mobilité des camions grumiers et de prolonger la saison de transport. Cependant, il existe très peu d'information quant à leurs coûts de possession et de fonctionnement. FERIC a observé les systèmes TPCS Redline-Eltek et TPCS Eaton durant une période de trois ans. L'étude portait sur 24 camions grumiers de configurations variées, localisés dans six endroits différents de l'ouest du Canada. Le rapport présente les coûts de possession et de fonctionnement des systèms TPCS pour ces 24 camions et décrit comment le taux d'utilisation du camion affecte les coûts de possession du TPCS et du camion.

Abstract
FLNRO, with technical assistance from the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and FPInnovations, conducted a case study of the vulnerability to climate change of infrastructure on the 70 km-long in-SHUCK-ch forest service road. The workshop participants followed a process established by the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC). This case study provided both meaningful analysis of the risks and opportunities faced by the in-SHUCK-ch FSR corridor and the communities it provides access to, and establishes a benchmark for future iterations of the process with resource roads. A series of recommendations are made that arise from the PIEVC analysis. These recommendations included the need to streamline and focus the PIEVC process specifically for resource roads, capacity building actions by road managers and maintainers, a review of emergency preparedness plans for the communities accessed by the FSR, actions to safeguard FSR infrastructure and residential development on lakeshore debris fans, a general review and inspection of drainage structures, actions to review and improve the resiliency of stream crossing structures and, finally, a recommendation to review the scope and size of the road maintenance program.

Abstract
FPInnovations, in cooperation with Alberta Transportation and the Laval University i3C Chair, undertook a review of the starting threshold for initiating winter weight hauling in Alberta. The objective of this project was to conduct an engineering analysis of freezing pavements to determine the minimum frost depth at which log hauling at winter weight premiums (WWP) in Alberta could start without compromising pavement service life. The report describes literature on freezing pavement engineering, Canadian winter weight policies, a controlled trafficking simulation of an instrumented pavement as it was frozen, and subsequent modeling to valiidate results and extrapolate results ot a wider range of pavement structures. It was recommended that the current 1.0 m starting frost depth threshold be reduced to a depth of 700 mm.
