The power service installation includes a weatherhead, conduit and fittings, a disconnect switch with enclosure, meter base and attachment clamps.
Bend the conduit away from the pole at the top and bottom of the riser to allow the conduit to enter straight into the enclosure or meter base hub, and to provide space for the weatherhead when the riser is pulled tight against the pole. Furnish watertight conduit connections between the meter base and enclosure by using conduit hubs listed on the enclosure UL label.
Paint conduit risers mounted on painted poles to match the poles.
632.25 Covering of Vehicular and Pedestrian Signal Heads. Cover vehicular signal heads if erected at intersections where traffic is maintained before energizing the signals. Cover pedestrian signal heads when specified in the plans. Use a sturdy opaque covering material specifically made for use with traffic signals, and ensure that the color of the cover is different than the signal head, tan or beige, so that it is clear to drivers and pedestrians the heads are covered, not dark, Use a method of covering and cover attachment and materials as approved by the Engineer. Covers are to be free of text, pictures, or any type of advertising. . Maintain covers, and remove them when directed by the Engineer.
632.26 Removal of Traffic Signal Installation. Remove signal heads, cable, messenger wire, strain poles, cabinet, controller, or other incidental items required by the Engineer. Remove support foundations to at least 1-foot (0.3 m) below subgrade or finished groundline. Backfill, restore surfaces, and dispose of surplus material according to 105.16, 105.17 and 611.15. Store removed items on the project for salvage by the maintaining agency, or reuse removed items as part of a new installation on the project under another item of work. Dispose of all items not designated for salvage or reuse. As specified in 614.03, do not remove signals until a new signal system or a temporary traffic control method approved by the Engineer is in operation. Suitably protect stored equipment.
632.27 Reuse of Traffic Signal Equipment. Reinstall or re-erect specified traffic equipment, removed from existing signal installations within the project. Clean and restore reused equipment to an operating condition, and relamp signals with the proper type and size lamp. Furnish all additional hardware and incidentals necessary to allow reuse of the equipment.
A. General. Furnish all personnel and equipment required to successfully perform the following tests, and furnish to the Engineer six certified copies of complete test records, test reporting forms supplied by the Engineer, or alternate certification approved by the Engineer.
B. Ground Test. Measure each ground rod for earth resistance according to 625.19, except that measurements are not necessary immediately after installation.
C. Short-Circuit Test. Before performing any cable insulation tests or performance test, perform a short-circuit test with a volt-ohmmeter or other approved instrument. Conduct short-circuit tests with electrical loads, power sources, equipment grounds, and earth grounds disconnected. Test signal cable routed to signal heads with connections made to lamp sockets without lamps installed. Measure each conductor against every other conductor and ground to ensure that no short-circuits, cross-circuits, or other improper connections exist. Ensure that continuity does not exist between any conductor and another conductor including ground.
D. Circuit Continuity Test. Temporarily jumper each circuit branch at its termination and the temporarily looped circuit measured for continuity to ensure that no open circuits exist, that the circuit branch is according to plan, that no high resistance connections exist, and that each circuit is properly identified. Test the lead-in cable for loop detector wire before and after splicing the cable to the loop wire. As an alternative, perform the circuit continuity testing of signal head cable by applying 120 volts to each outgoing circuit and observing that only the proper lamps are lighted.
E. Cable Insulation Test. Ensure that the insulation resistance measured to ground is not less than 10 megohms for each conductor of cable or wire terminating at the controller cabinet. Perform insulation testing with all conductors disconnected from their points on the terminal blocks. Measure insulation resistance for the wire of roadway loops after the embedding of the wire with sealant in slots. Include a list of the resistance readings for each conductor in the test results. After completing the cable insulation test, connect all cabinet wiring according to the wiring diagram. Demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Engineer that all circuits are continuous and operating correctly with freedom from shorts, crosses, and unintentional grounds.
F. Functional Test. Before the 10-day performance test begins, make the following checks and demonstrate to the Engineer that the system is ready for the performance test. Ensure that the incoming AC voltage is a nominal 120 volts. If the supplied voltage under load is less than 100 or more than 130 VAC, contact the power company to arrange correction. Ensure that the cabinet ventilating fan, fan thermostat, and convenience outlet with lamp is operational. Verify correct timing settings on the controller as shown on the plans. Check all cabinet switches including the power on/off switch and flash switch. Check all controller functions to verify correct operation. Check the detector units to determine which pavement loop is associated with which detector unit. Check the visual call strength indication of detector units to determine that each vehicle class (truck, car, motorcycle, and bicycle) entering sensor areas is detected on the associated detector unit and that no extraneous calls occur when the sensor area is vacant. Occasional extraneous calls may be permitted by the Engineer if necessary to assure detection of small vehicle targets (bicycles and motorcycles). Check the flash switch to verify transfer of signal operation to flash and return to stop-and-go. Check the conflict monitor to verify that it is not activated by normal signal operations or by the manipulation of cabinet switches. If the monitor is activated, determine the cause of the problem and make appropriate changes and adjustments before beginning the performance test. Test the conflict monitor by artificially causing a number of different conflicting indications, and verify that at each test the monitor causes the signals to begin flashing and places the controller in a “stop timing” mode. Obtain artificial causation either by touching a jumper wire between two conflicting load switch outputs or by other methods approved by the Engineer. Ensure that the signal flashes when the monitor is disconnected.
G. Performance Test. At least 7 days before the performance test begins, notify the Engineer of the starting date. The Engineer will notify the maintaining agency. Before acceptance, operate the traffic control system continuously for 10 consecutive days without major malfunction or failure. Immediately replace or repair minor failures (such as lamps, a single detector unit, or an individual signal head, etc.) that do not cause restart of the test. Major malfunctions or failures (such as a master or local controller, interconnect equipment, etc.) will cause termination of the test and, after replacement or repair, the beginning of a new 10-day test. Monitor items that have been repaired or that are replacements for a 10-day period to provide assurance of their reliability. Record, for inclusion in the test result, the method and date of correction of each fault, and the beginning and end of the test.
