LTG Designs Innovative “Rocket” Signal at Kennedy Space Center

LTG, Inc. is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first swing-arm traffic signal within the Kennedy Space Center.  The innovative signal is located at the intersection of Space Commerce Way and Galaxy Way at the new entrance to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.  The arms supporting the signal heads controlling the westbound, southbound and eastbound approaches are mounted on hinges which allow the arms to swing out of the path of the transporter as it carries rockets between Blue Origin’s launch vehicle preparation facility and the launch pad.  The innovative design was produced in LTG’s Brevard County Office in West Melbourne under the direction of LTG’s Vice President, Gil Ramirez, PE and Austin Moisio, PE.  Mr. Ramirez explained; “We were told that this is the third installation of this technology in the nation, and the second in Florida.  We reached out to the other agencies who have deployed similar systems in the past to gather any lessons learned from operating the arms.  This allows us to provide KSC with a technology that is innovative but reliable and practical.”
