The Southwest Ontario Section of ITE Canada are excited to host our first event of 2023! Having been generously offered by the City of London, we will have a tour of the London municipal operations yard, followed by a social dinner at Eleven-Sixty Bar and Grill.
Ever wanted to check out the brine tanks or walk into one of the sand domes? How about getting a close-up view of a plow/sander? Join us for this behind the scenes look at the equipment, people, and processes of maintaining an urban/rural road network, especially focusing on the challenges of winter maintenance. This tour can even help to build a greater knowledge and appreciation for those Transportation Professionals (engineers, technologists, designers, planners) who have not had a chance to work in operations.
This will also provide a chance to meet and engage with your peers in the Southwest Ontario Transportation sector. Our Section President will provide an update on the Section (including some events in the works for this summer!) and some ITE Canada news as well.
