Smart Road tours

School Day

The VTTI and VDOT School Day is for students from first grade through college. Every student will have a chance to see the Virginia Smart Roads and other VTTI facilities. The tour lasts 45-90 minutes and may either be the full tour or may need to follow an abbreviated schedule, depending on grade level, attention span, number of students in the group, and other factors. However, all students will experience the all-weather testing capabilities of the Smart Roads Highway, taking a bus through a simulated rain event on the road.

If you wish to be notified of future School Day events or would like more information, please sign up here.

Open House

Individuals, families, and groups are invited once a year to come and take a 45-minute tour of the Virginia Smart Roads and to learn about VTTI research.

To be notified of future open houses, please sign up here!


Due to our increased research schedule, we are not able to offer individual tours on days other than those designated for School Day and/or public Open House. We would love for you to visit with us, but you will need to make arrangements to do so on specified dates.
