Updating A Guide to Standardized Highway Lighting Pole Hardware

The objective of this project is to update the Guide to Standardized Highway Lighting Pole Hardware. This guide has not been updated since 1980 and is well out of date. The 1980 guide is outdated in several areas including the following: It does not reflect the requirements of the 1994 American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard Specifications for Structural supports for Highway Signs, Luminaries and Traffic Signals; It does not reflect Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) mandated crash testing of components; It does not include other materials currently being used such as prestressed concrete, fiber reinforced plastic and wood: Nor does it include a wide array of hardware associated with traffic signal poles. The project deliverables are an updated Guide, in hard copy and electronic formats, and a final report which describes the project, and which recommends a process for future updating.
