Assessment of the Performance of Vehicular Traffic Signal Assemblies During Hurricane Force Winds

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Determine the nature of wind loading and system response of wire supported traffic signal assemblies for winds up to 150 MPH. This will be achieved through full scale testing using an 80ft span test frame for a single wind direction. (2) Determine the nature of wind loading and system response of wire supported traffic signal assemblies for winds up to 150 MPH. This will be achieved through full scale testing using a 20ft span test frame for multiple wind directions.
