2023 VASITE Fall Meeting and Traffic Bowl
November 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm – November 28, 2023 @ 3:00 pm
VASITE hosted their Fall Meeting ad Traffic Bowl at Virginia Tech on November 27th and 28th. The event was kicked off Monday night with a social gathering where members caught up with old friends and the students were encouraged to mingle. Tuesday, the fall meeting started with technical presentations from both members and Virginia Tech faculty, followed by the annual Traffic Bowl between VT and UVA where in a close battle to the end, Virginia Tech won and will be headed to Wilmington NC to represent VASITE in the SDITE traffic bowl. The day was capped off by a presentation and tour of Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) Smart Roads facilities, a suite of test tracks that enable advanced-vehicle testing in an interconnected and comprehensive cross section of roadways: including highway, surface, rural, and unimproved/dirt. One of the highlights of the conference was an on-the-fly presentation to fill in time for a no-show, where engineers in the room, including consultants, City and County staff, had an open and honest dialogue with the students about hiring, working in the field, pros and cons of different career paths as well as other topics.
