Item 7 - Portable swing sign
Enquiry
2. MUTCD - The reference to this document is understandable, but in Ontario the document of reference for traffic control is usually Book 7 of the Ontario Traffic Manual. Please advise. 4.1.4 As the Swing signs are used in a non-intrusive manner on top of concrete barrier (as opposed to traffic gates that swing out into traffic), they are not crash tested. If gates arms are used to swing the signs out into the traffic lane area, we can supply the NCHRP 350 Letter of acceptance issued by the FHWA. 5.1.2 - 5.1.7 Swing Signs typically pivot on a central axis along the centerline of the sign panel to prevent sign from swinging out too far into traffic. The mechanism to swing a sign out into traffic is comparable to a traffic gate. How far do you expect the signs to swing out into the lanes with the arm coloured construction orange ? 5.3.2 References to "gates" instead of "sign". Please advise. 5.4.1.8 and 5.5.1 Do these requirement include the power supply to the modem? If so, what is the typical power requirement for the type of modem required as this impact the Power requirement for our Solar Panels and charger (5.5.3 and 5.6.1 )?
