The Center for Sustainable & Resilient Infrastructure (CSRI) is a partnership between VTTI and Virginia Tech's Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Transportation Infrastructure and Systems Engineering (TISE) Program. The mission of CSRI is to envision, develop and deploy innovative, safe, efficient, sustainable, and resilient solutions for re-inventing, renewing, and managing our infrastructure facilities, networks, and systems, while educating the next generation of transportation professionals to have a solid academic foundation, be creative and resourceful, and appreciate the social, economic, and environmental impacts of our profession.
This recently completed project for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) included structural testing with the TSD on 1,500 miles of interstate roads and 2,520 miles of primary roads in Virginia.
CSRI has partnered with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Transportation Research Council to establish, operate and manage Virginia's Accelerated Pavement Testing Facility.
The objective of this project is to bring together pavement design and evaluation experts with maintenance and safety professionals to ensure that the work of the pavement community has an impact on striving for zero deaths on U.S. highways.
