Night time sign visibility cannot be ignored when reviewing the overall safety of our local roads. MUTCD revisions have brought significant sign retroreflectivity requirements to local agencies. Not all Connecticut municipalities are up to standard. The retroreflectometer on loan through the CT Training & Technical Assistance Center (T2 Center) allows municipal agencies the ability to measure the retroreflectivity of their signs to ensure they are in compliance.
The T2 Center has two Jamar Black Cat II Radar Recorders and eight MetroCount pneumatic traffic monitoring units which are part of our equipment loan program.
SIMPLE SETUP: Both the radar and the pneumatic tube units are self-contained and easy to install. We provide any and all necessary hardware needed to set up the unit along with programming of the unit.
REPORT PROCESSING: Upon completion of the monitoring, simply return the unit to the T2 Center. We process all collected data, assemble and customize the report(s), and return them to your agency without delay. Reports available to your agency include completely customizable speed, gap and axle classification reports which can be tailored to report specified information in an easy to use format.
Manual intersection traffic counters can be used to count turning movements.
The T2 Center has a Trans Tech Shoulder Wedge Maker which is available to your agency on loan. The Safety Edge is a great way to minimize the safety concerns over edge drop off, while at the same time providing a higher density, longer lasting edge on the outside edge of the pavement.
SAFETY: Roadway departures are a high-impact contributor to the severity of crashes across the United States. The Safety Edge has been shown to reduce the effort needed for vehicles to re-enter the roadway and reduce tire scrubbing along vertical outside pavement edges.
EASE OF USE: The Shoulder Wedge Maker mounts conveniently as a shoe on the inside of the paver wing.
A Ball Bank Indicator can be used to determine advisory speed limits.
The range finder can be used for estimating intersection, and stopping sight distances. The range is from 5 to 500 yards.
The speed gun can be used to estimate travel speed for advisory speed limits. Measures speeds from 10 to 200 mph, with up to 1500 feet of range.
The level can be used for estimating road and sidewalk grades and cross slope.
A Speed Feedback Sign can be used to alert drivers to how fast they are going, as a speed control measure, these signs can be loaned to municipalities to experiment with them to determine if they are something they should consider purchasing. Studies have shown that use of feedback signs can reduce speeds by up to 5 mph.
How can you ensure your community is ADA compliant and friendly? How can you gauge if your pedestrian amenities allow for mobility or vision impaired users? By using the T2 Center’s ADA compliance toolkit, you can determine first-hand whether or not your community is accessible.
