BOISE CITY

STANDARD REVISIONS FOR ISPWC DIVISION 1102

STREET LIGHTS

General Information

All work shall conform to the requirements of the most current edition of the National Electrical Code, the Idaho Standards for Public Works Construction (ISPWC), and the Supplementary Conditions and these Standard Revisions. Contractor shall become familiar with these documents to ensure full understanding of the requirements of this Project. Failure to do so does not relieve the Contractor of the duties, obligations and responsibilities addressed within those documents.

The Idaho State Electrical Board has determined that all street lights are to be provided with an external fuse disconnect, in a junction box between the power source and the street light pole. See Standard Drawings for connection requirements.

Street light installations inspections will be required for the concrete base reinforcing, the trench depth and bedding, and for the pole. Contact Boise City at 384-3900 for inspections (48 hour notice required).  Contractor shall notify the City when street light is ready for turn on.

Attachment A lists approved products for Boise City street light installations. Contact Boise Street Light staff to seek approval for any substitute products.
