Mid-Atlantic Entry Partners at Naval Weapons Station – Earle, Leonardo New Jersey

Johnson Controls Security Systems partnered with Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems on security upgrades at Naval Weapons Station – Earle.  The work was completed under the United States Navy Multi award contract site, Navy technical refresh program.  Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems expertise and project experience were fully utilized.

The scope of work included 22 in-ground traffic loops integrated into Navy IDF programming.  The loops allow queuing, wrong way, speed notification, safety and final denial as vehicles approach and travel through a DOD K-Rated barrier system.  Mid-Atlantic self performed all civil construction tasks associated with the installation of over 1000’ feet of control conduit as well as concrete duct system.  In addition, all civil construction of concrete traffic islands, pads and slabs.  The work included LED warning signs and traffic control lights integrated into the security system.

A unique feature of the project and Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems scope were fabrication and installation of Navy design transition ramps at two SecureUSA plate wedge barriers.  For installation Mid-Atlantic milled out two sections of existing concrete footer and installed 12” x 18” steel plates with 2” to 3” rise at each barrier for a ramp effect onto the wedge plates when down.  This will dramatically reduce wear and potential damage to the plate wedges as well as a smoother transition for vehicles.

To complete it’s scope Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems coordinated with Traffic Lines, Inc. to water blast existing markings and install new thermoplastic pavement markings.

Mid-Atlantic Entry systems perimeter security experience and turnkey approach made  a complicated job fast and efficient.
