Champion Controls supplied systems to automate the ramp gates for the recently completed reversible express lanes addition to I-595. The $1.2B FDOT project was completed in March 2014 after 4 years of construction. Entrance ramps to the Express Lanes are equipped with automated red and white striped warning gates in their closed position along the ramp to prevent a vehicle from entering the lanes in the wrong direction. The last gate is a barrier gate, designed to stop a vehicle.
In addition, Champion Controls supplied lighting control panels for FDOT’s Port of Miami Tunnel. The project, which is the first tunnel in Miami, provides a cost effective way to link the Port of Miami to the adjacent Interstate highway system. The Tunnel runs from Watson Island to Dodge Island.
