Roadside Signal Preemption/Priority105.0 - 6.0
(2005)
0.2 - 1.0
(2005)
Includes infrared detector, detector cable, phase selector, system software, and installation. Capital costs range is for two-directions. O&M cost estimate for operating, monitoring, and maintaining. Complement to transit (or emergency vehicle) on-board Signal Preemption/Priority Emitter. Capital costs can rise to $20K to $30K per intersection if traffic control equipment and/or systems need to be replaced.
Ramp Meter RS006525.0 - 50.0
(2003)
1.2 - 2.8
(2003)
Includes ramp meter assembly, signal displays, controller, cabinet, detection, and optimization.

Lane Control GatesRS01220100.0 - 150.0
(1995)
2.0 - 3.0
(1995)
Per location.
Fixed Lane SignalRS009206.0 - 8.0
(1995)
0.6 - 0.8
(1995)
Cost per signal.
Automatic Anti-icing System - Short Span1225.0
(1998)
2.0
(1998)
Typical automatic anti-icing system consists of a control system, chemical storage tank, distribution lines, pump, and nozzles. Pump and control hardware replaced every five years at cost of $3.5K. For a short span system ranging from 120 to 180 feet. O&M includes system maintenance, utilities, materials, and labor.
Automatic Anti-icing System - Long Span1250.0 - 495.0
(1999)
1.5 - 29.5
(1999)
Typical automatic anti-icing system consists of a control system, chemical storage tank, distribution lines, pump, and nozzles. Pump and control hardware replaced every five years at cost of $3.5K. For a long span system ranging from 320 feet to greater than 1/2 mile. O&M includes system maintenance, utilities, materials, and labor. The high O&M cost is for a much larger system; hence, the need for a greater amount of materials.
