31 May TransCore’s Toll Services Work Receives National Recognition Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–During the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) Engineering Excellence Awards in Washington D.C., TransCore’s work for the Delaware Department of Transportation (DELDOT) to convert the I-95 Newark Toll Plaza to open road tolling earned a National Recognition Award for demonstrating exceptional achievement in engineering.
TransCore served as the lead integrator on DELDOT’s conversion of the Newark Toll Plaza on I-95, adding two new electronic highway speed lanes on both the north and south bound plazas that successfully reduced congestion in a busy corridor for motorists and commercial freight carriers. Plaza throughput jumped from an estimated 250-300 transactions per lane per hour to an estimated 2,000. The $32 million project was fully funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Working around the clock, A-Del Construction, the prime contractor on the project, TransCore, and the I-95 toll plaza team beat the projected 479 calendar day delivery schedule by more than a month.
