N.W. 87th Avenue Interchange Reconstruction
CHA provided lighting and ITS design services as part of a greater reconstruction effort. The project limits extended from N.W. 92nd Avenue to N.W. 82nd Avenue.
Within the project and on all new ramps, CHA designed an entirely new lighting system. The new system comprised 21 high mast lights, 71 lighting poles, 20 under-bridge deck luminaires, and 2 service points. As part of our responsibilities for the new lighting system, we also provided lighting calculations, voltage drop calculations, illumination reports, a quality control plan, and shop drawing review/approval.
CHA also provided ITS, gantry design, and technical support. Our design called for installing nearly 7,200 feet of 144-strand fiber optic cable and 4,400 feet of 12-strand fiber optic cable, along with over 134 splices and 8 CCTV cameras. This design provided communication capabilities with the existing Florida Department of Transportation Fiber Optic Backbone.
