The project proposes to install five (5) automated pay machines (APMs) in existing parking lots. Four will be solar-powered units and one will replace the current unit and be hardwired to existing utilities; therefore, no additional trenching will be required for utilities.
Each APM unit will require a 3'x3' footprint, excavated to about 18-24 inches in depth for a poured concrete foundation. Bollards will be placed at each corner of the APM that can be approached by traffic. Bollards should be a minimum of a 36" above grade, set into concrete with anchoring bars at least 24" in depth, or anchored to a concrete slab.
