Traffic incident management is a coordinated team effort of local, state, federal, and private partners, working around the clock to meet the goal of quick incident clearance and keeping Virginia moving.

To kick off Federal Highway Administration’s National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week Nov. 11-17, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host an Incident Management Open House to make equipment, systems, and staff available for residents to see the behind-the-scenes work for this regional effort.

When: 10:00 a. m.-2:00 p. m. Saturday, Nov. 10
Where: VDOT’s Northern Virginia District Office, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax

An outdoor touch-a-truck exhibit will feature a simulated crash scene to help the public see an incident from the perspective of first responders who work in the roadway every day. Attendees can watch live demonstrations of patient extrication, towing recovery, drone operations, and tree removal.

Outdoor Exhibit Participating Agencies

An indoor expo will feature booths for VDOT incident management coordinators, public affairs, safety manager, signal operations, Safety Service Patrol, and Transportation Operations Center, as well as Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC), and Transurban. The event will also feature food trucks and a kids’ zone.
