Streetlight consultants should reference the following guidelines and examples to assign pole identification codes (Streetlight pole number) when installing County owned streetlight poles in the County. Streetlight Design consultants are responsible for assigning pole identification codes (Streetlight pole number) during the design stage.
Mid-block Guidelines and Examples
Streetlight poles are considered mid-block poles when they do not share an electrical meter with signal equipment. Streetlight poles often do not have signal equipment attached to them.
|AAA||Street codes (see table or map in “Streetlight Poles Maps and Tables” below)|
|BB||2-digit block number|
|CC||Pole number (poles on each block will start with 01 or 02 with the count increasing going west, or away from SR 50. Poles should be separated by even and odd, with all odd numbers on one side of the street and all even numbers on the opposite side of the street.)|
|D||Relation to SR 50. “N” for poles north of SR 50. “S” for poles south of SR 50.|
Intersection Guidelines and Examples
Intersection streetlight poles typically have signal equipment on them and share an electrical meter with signal equipment.
|AAA||Intersection ID with leading zeros (see map of intersection IDs in “Streetlight Poles Maps and Tables” below)|
|BB||Equipment code (“MA” for Mast Arm, “CP” for Carlyle Pole, “HA” for Hawk Signal)|
|CC||Count of poles per corner|
|D||Corner of intersection as either a cardinal direction or an inter-cardinal direction (e.g. “N” or “NW”)|
