Elizabeth River Crossings welcomes Philip Shucet as its new Chief Executive Officer. Shucet, former commissioner of the Virginia Department of Transportation and former CEO of Hampton Roads Transit, is a longtime Hampton Roads resident who has dedicated much of his professional life to improving public transportation. Greg Woodsmall, ERC’s former CEO, will remain with the company as vice president of operations.
“I know Philip personally and am confident he is the right man for the job,” Virginia Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne said. “I look forward to working with Macquarie, Skanska and the Governor to address the issues and embark on a new, closer relationship with ERC.” Macquarie-Skanska owns ERC.
Elizabeth River Crossings maintains, operates and manages tolling on the Downtown Tunnel, Midtown Tunnel and the MLK Expressway. The company recently completed several rehabilitation and expansion projects.
“I look forward to working with our employees and customers as we improve the level of service we provide on this award-winning project,” Shucet said.
