Bridge Bureau, the Equipment Bureau, the Construction Bureau, consultants, and the regions. This group's scope includes
all aspects of the electrical portion of a project, including analyzing street lighting warrants for FHWA participation,
laying out of lighting and power systems to meet current design standards, using computerized methods to predict
characteristics of a proposed lighting system, composing specifications for the required materials and installation
techniques used on a project. When lighting projects are designed outside the department, this group coordinates, reviews
and approves the plans and all lighting permits.
|Signing, Striping and TCP
|| The Signing, Striping, Pavement Marking and Traffic Control Plans (TCP)
group is responsible for reviewing signing, pavement marking and delineation, striping, and traffic control in roadway plans

and Final Back Check plan development phases prior to plans being let to contract. The TCP Group is also responsible for
establishing, reviewing and revising many of the Standard and Special drawings for signing, striping, pavement marking and
delineation. In addition, they also establish, review and revise corresponding pay items for Traffic Control, signing,
striping, pavement marking and delineation. During the Construction phase, they are responsible for reviewing and
approving proposed construction traffic control changes submitted through the Construction Bureau for active projects.
