Featured Project


The Mount Washington Tunnel is an important public transportation link in Pittsburgh. The 3,500-foot tunnel connects Station Square to South Hills Junction and is only used by light rail vehicles and buses operated by the Port Authority of Allegheny County. The Mount Washington Tunnel is the only tunnel in the United States to operate both bus and rail service.

Wellington Power Corporation, a premiere electrical and general contractor in the field of light rail and transportation tunnel projects in the Mid-Atlantic region, was awarded the Mount Washington Tunnel project for a complete NFPA 502 electrical upgrade based on Wellington’s longstanding relationship with the Port Authority of Allegheny County. Since 1987, Wellington has completed more than $107,000,000 of light rail, bus way, and tunnel upgrades to the Port Authority’s regional system.

Scope of work for the Mount Washington Tunnel includes:

  • 324 LED tunnel luminaries
  • Automated tunnel lighting control system
  • 66,570LF phenolic conduit
  • 40,500LF XHHW power wiring
  • 291,250LF RHW-2 hour fire resistant cable
  • 4,000LF 144 strand fiber optic cable
  • Replacement of the traction power transformer


Additional construction elements for the electrical system upgrade include:

  • Maintenance and protection of traffic
  • PLC modifications
  • System-wide testing of the fiber optic carrier network
  • Testing and documentation
  • Electrical demolition


Based on Wellington’s light rail experience, qualifications, and in-house high rail equipment inventory of rolling stock, Wellington is the clear choice for any Mid-Atlantic transportation agency.
