We welcome public visitors to our School Day and Open House events. If your organization is interested in a group tour outside of those events, please email

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. Tours range from 45 to 90 minutes. Options are available for a full tour or an abbreviated schedule, depending on grade level, attention span, number of students in the group, and other factors. All students will experience the 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.

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.
