Equipment Costs for Roadside Control (RS-C)

Note: Equipment list adjusted to 2020 dollars. The date in parentheses under the capital cost value and O&M cost value represents the dollar year from which the cost value was adjusted. All costs are in $K.

Unit Cost Element IDAS# Life (years) Capital Cost $K, 2020 Dollars (Year) O&M Cost $K/year, Dollars (Year) Description
Linked Signal System LAN RS002 20 17.10 40.16 (2005) 0.23 0.46 (1995)

This element provides the connections to the linked signal system.

Software for Lane Control RS011 20 27.35 54.70 (1995) 2.73 5.47 (1995)

Software and hardware at site. Software is off-the-shelf technology and unit price does not reflect product development.

Signal Controller Upgrade for Signal Preemption RS005 10 1.49 2.97 (2005)

Add-on to base capability (per intersection). Complement of IDAS elements RS004 and TV004.

Automatic Anti-icing System - Long Span 12 32.94 326.14 (1999) 0.99 19.44 (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 5 years. 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.

Fixed Lane Signal RS009 20 3.42 4.56 (1995) 0.34 0.46 (1995)

Cost per signal.

Lane Control Gates RS012 20 56.95 85.43 (1995) 1.14 1.71 (1995)

Per location.

Roadside Signal Preemption/Priority 10 3.72 4.46 (2005) 0.15 0.37 (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 RS006 5 17.81 35.63 (2003) 0.86 2.00 (2003)

Includes ramp meter assembly, signal displays, controller, cabinet, detection, and optimization.

Signal Controller and Cabinet 5.95 22.40 (2013) 0.15 0.37 (2005)

Includes installation of traffic signal controller per intersection.

Signal Preemption Receiver RS004 5 1.46 4.37 (2004) 0.03 0.15 (2004)

Two per intersection. Complement of IDAS elements RS005 and TV004.

Signal Controller Upgrade for Signal Control RS003 20 1.78 4.28 (2003) 0.15 0.30 (2003)

Local controller upgrade to provide advanced signal control.

Automatic Anti-icing System - Short Span 12 16.18 (1998) 1.29 (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. For a short span system ranging from 120 to 180 feet. O&M includes system maintenance, utilities, materials, and labor.

Traffic Signal 65.46 79.24 (2001) 1.58 1.98 (1999)

Includes installation for one signal (four-leg intersection), conduit, controller, and detection device. Cost ranges from traffic signal with inductive loop detection (low) to non-intrusive detection (high).
