VDOT, VTRC, and VAA collaborate on BMD training

With Balanced Mix Design (BMD) progressing towards initial implementation in 2023, VDOT, VTRC, and VAA continue working diligently to determine the training needs of this major paradigm shift. The first of these training events occurred on Tuesday, May 11 at Noon via a ZOOM Webinar provided by VDOT and hosted by VAA. Topics included an introduction to the BMD Concept, the VDOT BMD Approach, VDOT BMD Tests and Thresholds, and the 2021 BMD Special Provision. The session was concluded with a Q&A session that included a panel of folks from VDOT, VTRC, and VAA. These presentations can be viewed on VAA’s YouTube Channel. Much has been learned from the BMD pilot projects over the past few years, with more to be gained as these pilot projects continue into 2021 and beyond. Continue to reach out to Mike Dudley with your thoughts related to BMD training needs as we move forward.
