2023 Annual Joint WDCSITE/VASITE/YPT
Technical Meeting at Audi Field
September 20, 2023
4:30 pm – 10:00 pm
On Wednesday September 20, 2022, VASITE, the Washington DC Section of ITE (WDCSITE), and Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) gathered at Audi Field for the 4th annual joint technical meeting, networking, and soccer match. This flagship event has gained popularity over the years and again was a great success as approximately 120 members and colleagues attended from the three organizations.
This year’s technical program included four presentations that focused on planning, public outreach, and design of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), placemaking and bicycle design, and emerging technologies that can enhance safety at intersections and corridors. These presentations were an overview of Staunton District’s Multi-Modal Pipeline Studies; highlighting the engineering lessons learned from the Duke Street BRT project; placemaking and balancing mobility of all users along Pennsylvania Avenue West; and developing a “sandbox” for DDOT to test and evaluate technologies to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists using new sensors and crowdsourcing data.
Afterwards, attendees gathered for a happy hour with drinks and meals with a chance to network with professionals across all organizations. The night was capped off with a tough match between DC United and Atlanta United FC. After being down a goal for most of the game, DC United was able to score in 80th minute to end in a 1-1 draw!!
