The 2016 VASITE Spring Meeting will be held on March 16th and 17th at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) near the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia.

We are thrilled to try a new format for the Spring Meeting this year. The meeting will be held at VTTI and will include tours of the facility and their Smart Road test track and other demonstrations. The meeting will be split across two days, to accommodate travelers to southwest Virginia from the north and east. The first session, on the afternoon of the 16th, will be similar in style and structure to past VASITE meetings, consisting of stimulating presentations by your peers on topics relevant to our industry and consistent with the meeting’s theme of Technology’s Role in the Future of Transportation Planning & Design in Virginia.” The second session, held on the morning of the 17th, will consist of the tours and demonstrations by VTTI.

Between the technical sessions, on the evening of the 16th, we invite members to relax, socialize, and network over delicious fare at Frank’s CineBowl. The dinner-social will be a prelude to the VASITE Traffic Bowl, pitting teams from our student chapters at Virginia Tech, UVA, and ODU against one another to determine which team will represent our section at the Southern District Meeting in Nashville. Following the Traffic Bowl, stick around to enjoy the comradery of your colleagues and the opening round games of the NCAA basketball tournament.

We are also excited to extend an invitation to and welcome our friends and colleagues from the ITSVA and the ASHE Blueridge Section to our Spring Meeting.
