SCOPE OF SERVICES:
The PROFESSIONAL will prepare construction plans and permit applications for the above

requirements. The services include the following: topographic survey (provided by COUNTY),
geotechnical investigation, signalization design, geometric design, signing and pavement marking
design, signal structural design, permitting, utility coordination, Subsurface Utility Exploration (SUE),
and a complete set of construction plans and all necessary permits.
a. Prepare all signalization plans according to current Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) Standards for COUNTY Engineering Services Department,
Traffic Operations Division.
b. The FDOT shall approve the designs for Fire Station 23, Fire Station 37 and Fire
Station 16. The PROFESSIONAL shall be responsible for obtaining FDOT approval
of these plans.

c. The PROFESSIONAL shall be responsible for any special design poles or
foundations if standard FDOT pole designs cannot be used.
d. All signal designs shall be for mast arms. If the maximum arm length is not adequate,
supplemental signals mounted on pedestal in medians shall be used.
e. Controllers and cabinet assemblies shall be NEMA TS2 Type 1 except for Fire
Station 39. This signal shall be a 333JP 2070 ATMS cabinet.
i. The NEMA TS2 Type 1 controller units shall meet, at a minimum, all of
requirements for a D4-4, eight-phase dual-ring controller, and shall be
compatible with NEMA TS-2 Type 1 with 2070 connectors and harnesses.
ii. The NEMA TS2 Type 1 traffic controller cabinets shall meet the requirements
of a TS-2 Type 1, 2070 traffic controller cabinet assembly, and shall include
all communication terminal panels required to make the controller unit totally
compatible with the COUNTY'S traffic control system. The minimum
requirements of a TS-2 Type 1 cabinet are found in NEMA Standards. The
cabinets shall be in accordance with COUNTY specifications 04-001 and 04-
iii. The 333JP 2070 ATMS cabinet shall be fully compatible with the COUNTY
ATMS system and shall require the SCATS software for operation in the
system. The cabinet shall include all fiber optic interface panels.
f. Communications is required for this project as follows;
i. Fire Station 15, located at 11538 Trinity Boulevard.
No communications required.
ii. Fire Station 16, located on S.R. 54 and Geiger Cemetery Road.
No communications required.
iii. Fire Station 23, located at 21300 S.R. 54 east of U.S. 41.
Spread Spectrum radio 900 MHz
iv. Fire Station 37, located on S.R. 54 east of Ballantrae Boulevard.
Fiber Optics pull box at cabinet and repeating modem for future connection
v. Fire Station 39, located at 11630 County Line Road North, east of Heritage
Pines. Fiber Optics to be connected to the Fiber system being installed on
the County Line Road North project.
g. 3M Opticom emergency vehicle pre-emption shall be provided for the exit from the
Fire Stations. Advance detection shall be included when less than 1,000 feet line of
site is available.
h. There shall be two (2) design submittals at the 60% and 100% design stages. At
each stage, the COUNTY and the FDOT shall be allotted ten (10) calendar days for
review of each submittal. The COUNTY standard traffic signal notes for Mast Arms
shall be placed on the plans.

2. SIGNING & PAVEMENT MARKINGS
a. All required signing and pavement markings shall be included in the design.
b. Any existing signing and pavement markings no longer required or that conflict with
the signal installation shall be removed.
c. COUNTY standard signing and pavement markings notes shall be placed on the
plans. COUNTY standard notes can be found on the COUNTY WEB site under
Traffic Operations (www.pascocountvfl.net).
a. The structural services shall include the design and construction plans
development for the signal structures mast arms. The signal structures at each
intersection will be FDOT mast arms. Preferably the standard FDOT mast arm
design will be used. Services shall include design calculations and detailed plans
for development of this design, for each location.
b. All structure plans andlor structural design for portions of this Project are to be
prepared in accordance with the latest design specifications adopted by AASHTO,
FDOT Plans Preparation Manual, FDOT Standard Specifications, FDOT Structural
Design Guidelines and the FDOT Structural Detailing Manual. The design shall be
performed in English units, in general compliance with recent FDOT standards and
1. Project improvements will not require a SWFWMD (ERP) or an NPDES permit.
2. No separate utility relocation plans will be required for the Project. Any necessary
relocation will be indicated on the Signalization Plans. Services do include
coordination with utility owners who may have some adjustments necessary for the
3. Maintenance of Traffic plans will consist of references to FDOT Standard Indexes,
drawings and notes.
4. Services do not include any bid phase or construction phase services.
SURVEY (Provided bv COUNTY):
1. The design of all intersections shall be based on the survey data obtained by the
COUNTY as part of this Scope of Services. The survey will include topographic data
showing visible physical features for 200 feet in each direction, from the fire station
intersection. Utility information will be obtained from utility owners within the project
limits, and shown on the signalization plans.
1. Conduct a visual site reconnaissance of the Project Site and locate and coordinate
FIRE STATION SIGNAL DESIGNS, EXHIBIT " A Page 3 of 4
2. Perform one (1) Standard Penetration Test (SPT) boring to a depth of approximately
30 feet below existing site grades at each proposed signal pole location. In each
boring, samples will be collected and SPT resistances will be measured virtually
continuously for the top 10 feet and on intervals of 5 feet thereafter.
3. Visually classify and stratify all recovered soil samples in the laboratory using the
Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) in accordance with the American Society of
Testing and Materials (ASTM) Test Designation D-2488.
4. Measure observed groundwater levels.
5. Evaluate the data collected at each of the proposed pole locations and generate a Soil
Parameters Table to be used by the structural engineer in design of the proposed
6. Prepare a formal Engineering Report and Report of Core Boring Sheet, which
summarizes the course of study pursued, the field data generated, the subsurface
conditions encountered, and the geotechnical recommendation for the design and
construction of the proposed signal poles.
SUBSURFACE UTILITY EXPLORATION (SUE):
1. Perform utility investigation using ground penetrating radar in an attempt to find a suitable
location for the proposed mast arm foundations free of utility obstructions.
2. Perform utility investigations at proposed mast arm pole foundations in the form
of a 6' x 6' x 6' trench.
3. Proposed mast arm pole foundations staking and all necessary survey for SUE work
shall be the responsibility of the PROFESSIONAL under this Scope of Services.
