    • Queensboro Bridge Project, New York City -- 25,000 feet of 216-Strand Fiber / 10,000 feet of 30-Strand Fiber DETAIL: The work consists of the furnishing, installation and testing of closed circuit television (CCTV) equipment to replace the existing CCTV equipment on the bridge, and to install a fiber optic communication system to link the replacement equipment with the existing video system at the Traffic-Management-Center (TMC) located in Long Island City, New York. The work includes color cameras, camera enclosures, zoom lenses, pan-tilt units, and pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) control receivers; fiber optic cable, transceivers, splices, connectors, and patch panels; Conduit and fittings, fasteners; pull boxes/hand holes; and all cabling and hardware required for a fully operating system, all as shown and specified on Contract Drawings. The replacement CCTV cameras are being installed at the same locations as the existing fixtures, using existing support brackets except where noted otherwise. Adapters shall be designed and furnished for mounting replacement camera assemblies onto the existing support brackets. Shims or other devices are used to adjust the horizontal plane of fixed cameras and housings, the horizontal plane of motion of a pan-tilt unit, to be parallel to the horizon, to the satisfaction of the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) Engineer-in-Charge (E.I.C.). All replacement cameras must be aligned to provide the same field of view as the existing cameras. For cameras with PTZ, the PTZ-drivers must be programmed with the identical PTZ stop setting as the existing PTZ drivers. The fiber optics communication system is being installed to transmit video and control signals between the camera locations and the TMC. The fiber optic cable must be suspended from the existing messenger on the south side of the bridge, along with the 216-Strand fiber optic backbone cable provided under this contract, and must transition via conduit to existing underground conduit located on the north side of the bridge as it is routed from the bridge structure to the TMC building. The fiber optic transceivers, and the replacement PTZ control receivers, are being installed within the existing camera control receiver cabinets located on the bridge. At the completion of work, including work paid for under this contract, Fiber Optic Backbone and Interface with Manhattan Coaxial Network, the contractor must have: removed four (4) existing coaxial cables, complete with amplifiers, from each side of the bridge (amplifiers must be turned over to the New York City Department of Transportation Engineer-in-Charge); remove an existing figure-8 coaxial cable from the south side of the bridge; maintain two (2) existing fiber optic cables; install a 30 fiber optic communication system for a CCTV system, complete with CCTV cameras; and install a 216-Strand fiber optic cable on each side of the bridge. The contractor must maintain the operation of the existing systems and cabling until such time as the furnished systems are fully operational and accepted by the NYCDOT E.I.C.
