In 2006 the Library digitized all VDOT Research Reports from 1970-present.  More than 50 bound volumes of reports (back to 1944!) are on the library's shelves at this call number: REFERENCE TE 24 .V8 V473

So full-text copies of all research conducted by VDOT's research arm, the Virginia Center for Transportation Research and Innovation (VCTIR), formerly known as the Virginia Transportation Research Council (VTRC), can now be found online at: http://vtrc.virginiadot.org/PUBS.aspx 

A complete record of all VDOT research reports (even the really old ones!) can be found using the library's EOS Library Catalog or by simply contacting Library@VDOT.Virginia.gov or calling 434-293-1902.  Two helpful bibliographies of VDOT research publications are: 

  1. The Virginia Highway Research Council: bibliography of writings, 1944-June 1966, with annotations.
  2. An annotated bibliography of Virginia Transportation Research Council writings, July 1966-June 1989.

The library also holds a number of VDOT research reports produced by consultants on commission. Please check the library's EOS Online Catalog for details.
