The Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project will transform Northern Virginia's Interstate 66 into a multimodal corridor that moves more people, provides reliable trips and offers new travel options. The project is a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), and private partner, I-66 Express Mobility Partners, delivering $3.7 billion of transportation improvements in the I-66 corridor.
- Representing VDOT

ATCS is helping support VDOT on this 22.5-mile widening and managed lane project on I-66 in Northern Virginia. Their responsibilities include project management and delivery services, technical noise analysis lead and support role, and operational assistance. More specifically, they are providing noise analysis guidance and support, technical management, review services, and project delivery assistance to ensure the Final Design noise analysis complies with VDOT's latest Highway Traffic Noise Impact Analysis Guidance Manual. They have performed a series of technical reviews in support of the Final Design noise analysis to ensure compliance. In addition, they evaluated noise abatement recommendations proposed by the contractor to ensure acoustical benefits were maximized and performed a series of reviews on all project-specific TNM noise models to ensure each meet current standards and best modeling practices.=

- NVRC had a webinar specifically about data centers
- It was hosted by Virginia Tech with guests from the industry from Germany. They have many data centers and apparently a much more sophisticated power grid in Germany but Virginia Tech is also rethinking the delivery, looking at potential smaller facilities that serve areas directly adjacent to them. It brings to mind the many empty malls and the potential for putting them there to power and heat both the mall and the surrounding communities they serve. The point of this was to rethink them because what is currently being done is using valuable land and water and that is just unsustainable. But there is still a growing demand for technology so rethinking these may lead to better outcomes. One thing was notable, Germany demands much more from the operators and the US can learn from that example. This was also sent this over to the Land Use staff because we need to ask for more and they need to understand what is being done better in other places.
