Chesapeake Electrical Systems, Inc. provided communications, electrical, ITS and associated underground and overhead infrastructure for the toll locations along at the Mid Town and Down Town Tunnels as well as the MLK extension; all located in Portsmouth VA. This work required significant coordination since detours were not possible as the tunnels are the only path in and out of town. Road closures which were required to erect several large, overhead gantries that spanned well over 160’ of active roadway had to be coordinated months in advance and executed without issue. CES also installed the corridor lighting, generators and other roadside equipment such as a dozen ITS cabinets and the 143 traffic loops that support this intelligent transportation system while satisfying VDOT standards and keeping traffic impacts to an absolute minimum.
