The Virginia 811 Educational Mobile Trailer

Virginia 811 is excited to share that we are underway with a project to develop a mobile education trailer, slated for completion in 2024. 

This new 16’ x 7’ x 7’ pull-behind trailer is a dynamic educational classroom designed to raise awareness of the Dig with C.A.R.E. message and its crucial role in preventing damage to underground utilities. 

Equipped with interactive displays, educational materials, and hands-on activities, the trailer aims to engage students, community members, and industry professionals in learning about underground utility safety. It represents a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to promote safe excavation practices and protect Virginia’s underground infrastructure. By bringing education directly to communities across the state, we hope to empower Virginians with the knowledge and awareness needed to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of our utilities.

The launch of the trailer in 2024 comes at a crucial time as Virginia continues to experience growth and development in its infrastructure projects. With increased construction activities, the need for heightened awareness of underground utility safety has never been more critical.
