Despite COVID challenges that precluded its usual in-person breakfast event, DATA held its Annual Transportation Roundtable via Zoom on August 11th with close to 50 “attendees.”

Updating DATA’s members and supporters were representatives of the three County Departments of Transportation: Tom Biesiadny, Director, Fairfax County Department of Transportation; Paolo Belita, Regional Planning and Programming Manager, Prince William County Government Department of Transportation; and Penny Newquist, Assistant Director Transportation Services, Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure.

Also presenting their views on the state of transportation in Northern Virginia were Helen Cuervo, PE, Northern Virginia District Engineer, Virginia Department of Transportation; Jennifer Mitchell, Director, Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation; Christina Saull, Corporate Communications Manager, Lead Public Information Officer, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority; and Alfonza Watson, Jr., Senior Business Account Representative, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

The Annual Transportation Roundtable is a much-anticipated event for anyone interested in transportation and transportation projects in Northern Virginia as a “one-stop” source of current and reliable information.
