We partnered with Brooks-Berry-Haynie (BBH) and Kimley-Horn on the Design-Build Team to deliver approximately 586 miles of long-haul fiber-optic communications infrastructure for the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).
Our team is designing fiber-optic cable routing plans, project specifications, special design details, and fiber-optic splicing details for fiber optic communication backbone that includes approximately 181 miles along I-95, 125 miles along US-70, and 280 miles along US-74. Summit’s Team performed field reviews of over 586 fiber miles for conceptual plans confirming the route and investigations of the connection to rest areas, weigh stations, signal systems, CCTV cameras, and dynamic message signs.
We will also prepare approximately 46 railroad encroachment permits along the proposed fiber routes. During the duration of the project, Summit will review proposed roadway projects along the corridor to determine the proposed cross-section and grading extents so the proposed broadband conduit routing can avoid planned roadway widenings. The project will connect over 300 new and existing ITS devices which include network hub cabinets, CCTV cameras, dynamic message signs, signal systems, weather information systems, and connected vehicle sites.
