We are providing traffic engineering services for the Signal System Upgrade project located in Gastonia, North Carolina. This project includes thirteen (13) existing City-owned signalized intersections, thirteen (13) existing CCTV cameras, and the recommendation of new CCTV camera locations.
Our team is responsible for the inventory of existing signals and existing CCTV cameras, which included gathering physical locations, equipment, electrical service arrangement, existing conduit entrances, existing fiber optic cable slack storage, existing risers, existing foundation configuration and orientation, and any non-standard aesthetic decorations being used.
Once the inventory was completed, our team compiled and summarized the data in order for it to be used on the project website. The City then identified specific locations for the installation of new CCTV traffic surveillance and our team visited each location to identify whether or not it was possible to install a camera on the existing signal pole or if a new CCTV pole would be required. After the proposed sites were identified, we provided bucket truck surveys of each location to investigate the feasibility of installing a separate CCTV pole.
We also provided utility coordination, preliminary plans, system block diagram schematic sheets, and cable routing sheets for any new fiber-optic drop cables.
