Throughout Texas, there are a collection of regional mobility authorities (RMA) that manage the states toll roads. The Central Texas RMA (CTRMA) has awarded DBiS a five-year contract with two additional five-year renewal options to provide system-wide performance-based maintenance for their toll road system. This contract expands our work in Texas and gives us an initial presence in the Austin market. This features the general maintenance of the roadways and tolling facilities of the Manor Expressway, the MoPac Express, the Bergstrom Expressway, and other tolled roads through Travis, Hays, and Williamson Counties. It also calls for emergency and incident management and features enhanced criteria for performance reviews.
The role of a Road Ranger is a dangerous job. Shifts consist of motorist assistance like changing flat tires, removing hazardous debris, and traffic and accident management in all weather conditions while vehicles pass at high rates of speed. Kudos to David Caraballo and Yeardley Camacho who have been personally recognized by the local Fire Department for their assistance with a recent highway accident.
Their selfless commitment to safety and the community allowed other first responders to focus on the sensitive situation and clearing the scene as quickly as possible.
Essential workers come in many forms. We’re proud of the quick work our teams do to keep commuters safe during times of adversity and year round.
A violent storm system the morning of Monday, April 20th included a tornado that ripped across Central Florida in part of Marion County. The tornado’s winds lifted a 36-foot building from the trailer hauling it and tossed it over the northbound lanes before it smashed to the ground east of the interstate. The building clipped the back end of a DBi Services pickup truck driven by Thomas Walker. Thankfully, Thomas had no injuries. Additionally, downed trees scattered across the roadway blocked both southbound lanes of Interstate 75.
DBi Ocala crews quickly went to work with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department. They arrived on the scene within 15 minutes to clear the roadway of debris. The task at hand was extensive. It took 6 hours to get I-75 southbound clear for traffic.
