Travel Details

Please ensure your travel plans accommodate the following points:

  • Participants are expected to arrive in time to attend the final dry-run review on Tue. June 6th.  The dry-run review will be scheduled to begin at approximately noon.
  • The project is expected to be dismissed by the review panel around noon on Thur. June 8th

Attendees should make their own hotel reservations.  It is suggested that attendees stay at either the Westin Arlington Gateway or the Hilton Arlington.

Note: There are two major events occurring in Arlington during the week of the review, so hotel rooms are scarce.
