Barriers and beam gates will be deployed with the ramp facing in the direction of the potential threat. Barrier placement is specifically designed to account for stopping distance as well as to take advantage of adjacent physical structures which will further support effective mitigation. Please Note: This Assessment utilizes satellite imagery and street views provided by a third-Party and represents Meridian’s estimate based upon incomplete knowledge and a lack of familiarity with the proposed closure locations. Meridian recommends an on-site examination by a Company Representative in order to provide a certified hostile vehicle mitigation plan and solutions. The Assessment reflects the planned closures at the time of publishing and may be superseded by updated plans. Please ensure that updates are disseminated to the appropriate stakeholders.

STATE THEATER BLADE REPLICA ARC REVIEW; 2.21.24 SCOPE: phase 1 The following is the proposed work for the fabrication of a replication of the State Theater blade sign. The product includes a solid- state programmable flasher/speller to control the lighting. Several light shows can be pre-programmed, and it has the capability to update these light shows as desired. The base cost includes using upgraded LED lighting. All fabrication of the blade will be from steel angle structure and steel/aluminum sheet material. All finishes are acrylic polyurethane (automotive grade). All electrical will be per NEC code and all products are UL recognized. This includes UL 2161 compliant transformers, which require internal ground faulting. The blade sign will be fabricated to install on support structure points on the building prepared for it by engineer. SCOPE: phase 2 Preparation of steel sign support structure, removal of existing sign, and installation of newly built State Theater blade sign. Structural engineers will determine building support system specifications for steel support structure fabrication. Crane service for structural material rooftop staging and sign installation will be provided. All electrical connections tied into building will be made and secured in watertight connections.
