Thursday, March 21,2013 VDOT retired it’s state owned wrecker trucks at the 3MBT facility. In Virginia’s effort to cut expenses thru privatization contractors, the private Company : Tidewater Express ; took over the duties of operating a 24/7 Interstate Bridge Tunnel facility wrecker/ crash trucks. TE has their own trucks and will be operating those. VDOT will no longer employ state crash trucks at this facility . See my photo of Tidewater Express wrecker company .
Personal note: this VDOT/ MMMBT employee is sorry to see this happen . It very much signals that possibly as soon
as a year that MY jobs here will be going private and I will have to leave a long (35 plus year Va. State career) and storied career to work for what ever private company that takes us over.
