A group of civil and environmental engineering students from Old Dominion University saw their classroom lessons in action while touring the I-64/264 Interchange project in October.

The seven seniors, all members of ODU's American Society of Civil Engineers chapter, watched subjects ranging from foundation work to water management put to practice on a scale the size of which they hadn't seen before, said Andrew Bunn, the chapter treasurer and a VDOT intern.

"Everyone really enjoyed the experience," Bunn said.
