Roberts Onsite’s Utilities Group upgraded the street lighting and traffic signal infrastructure along sections of a street in Arthur as part of a Ministry of Transportation grant program to improve provincial highways.
The team installed a new traffic signal system at the intersection of Charles and George Streets. Direct-buried conduit was put in place to bury the overhead lines that crisscrossed the intersection and power the new traffic signals and poles. New concrete bases were poured for the 8 new poles and the new traffic control cabinet.
The oversized highway signal head and pedestrian signal heads were assembled and installed to replace the existing traffic light infrastructure. Once the infrastructure was in place and operational, the existing system and poles were removed.
Further along the same street, our team installed two new street lights for a new pedestrian crosswalk. The new decorative poles were installed complete with new concrete bases, underground road crossing duct bank and the lighting duct bank.
The project was coordinated with the local power authority and the project construction manager.
