5 Understanding Project Scope (Design)
ERC utilization Plan submittals Device Cut Sheets Manual Tracking Shop Drawings Other Field Assessments ITS field device locations / site survey Potential underground utility conflicts Review of Right of Way limits Inventory of existing infrastructure Vay

6 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
Key Components of the Work 54 NEMA TS2 Type I Controller Assembles 36 CCTV Cameras 4 new Node Cabinets to be integrated into existing system Traffic Control Center (TOC) equipment upgrade and modification 38 Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) 28 System Detection Devices Reconnect existing opticoms in new cabinets (21 locations) 9 County Count Stations ADA improvements to affected intersections The project will be integrated into the existing Lee County TOC Econolite Centracs® System and Communications Network Arleny

7 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
Fiber Optic Communications Infrastructure Miles of directional bore due to existing field conditions Utilize existing as well as new fiber optic infrastructure Extensive splicing and integration Three 1¼” conduits (1 for FOC, 1 for locate and 1 spare) Locate system to be installed in dedicated pull box Separate conduit for electric (min 2”) US 41 and Fountain Lakes Arleny MLK and Veronica

8 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)
Fiber Optic Communications Infrastructure Locate existing utilities (Sunshine One Call); DBF utilizing SUE Bore logs to verify horizontal locations & depths Recommend field adjustments to avoid unforeseen conflicts Update plans to ensure accuracy of as-builts Conduits “proofed” to ensure continuity and absence of obstructions Review OTDR testing on existing and new fiber Arleny

9 Understanding Project Scope (Construction)

Unique Project Issues Grounding Requirements Background ATMS Project Highlights Testing Signal Cabinet CCTV Pole US 41 and Victoria Earl Lee County will operate and maintain ATMS after project acceptance Our Goal is to provide grounding that meets or exceeds project requirements

19 Unique Project Issues (Testing & Integration)
MTR requires: Preliminary Integration Plan 30 days prior to Pre-Integration Meeting Pre-Integration Meeting Discuss Preliminary Integration Plan Integration Plan 90 days prior to Integration Work Testing Factory Stand-Alone Subsystem Operational Test Burn-in Earl

20 Unique Project Issues (Testing & Integration)
Integration of system Equipment compatibility with Econolite Centracs® Interim Operations Maintain Operational Functionality TOC Equipment Installation Early in Project – 180 days from NTP Signal Groupings Existing ATMS Central Software Existing Communications Existing signal timings and MOT Achievable Systematic Deployment / Phasing of Construction and Procurement Phasing of construction Procurement Accurate Inventory Benefits Earl

21 Innovative Concepts If desired, ability to use FDOT ERC system for all submittals Expansion of the RTVM (Traceability Matrix) Include additional project requirements such as NEC Expand verification method (Factory, Stand-alone, Subsystem) Develop comprehensive field check lists using the RTVM Specialty staff and peak work staff brought in only as-needed Project Share Site for exchange of large files Dual trained staff No cost project office at 5500 Division Drive Environmental Specialist available at no cost to the Department Real time project tracking Paula
