Thursday, June 18, 2020 (9:00 AM - 10:30 AM) (EDT)
ACEC Virginia and Metropolitan Washington will host VDOT to provide a brief overview of where they are and what to expect on the horizon.
*Please include your questions and concerns when you register. All questions requested no later than June 12 so we provide sufficient time for VDOT to have answers for the webinar.
Presenter: Dave Covington, Interstate 81 Program Delivery Director
Covington has over 20 years of experience in the transportation industry, with diverse, yet vast expertise in design, maintenance and construction. Most recently, he has served as the Staunton District maintenance engineer. In design and construction, he has managed complex design-bid-build projects and large-scale design-build contracts, both with private engineering consultants to VDOT and as an employee of VDOT. Recently, he led VDOT’s $250 million Route 29 Solutions program in Charlottesville. Throughout the development and delivery of these major infrastructure projects, Covington utilized sound risk-management principles to ensure that projects were delivered safely, completed ahead of schedule and under budget, and that Virginia residents and taxpayers received good value for their investments. Covington will be charged with employing the same principles in managing implementation of the $2.2 billion package identified to improve the I-81 corridor.
Covington is a licensed professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Virginia and holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Tech.
