SES America is pleased to announce the successful commissioning of a cadre of dynamic message signs along Franklin D Roosevelt Drive in central New York City.
New York City Department of Transportation selected SESA’s unique upgrade process, saving the city half the money of new while transitioning to a brighter, more energy efficient technology
The housing of the DMS is left intact as it sits on its support structure, without the need to remove the sign for the upgrade installation. The upgrades were installed, tested, and commissioned in less than one day.
Brandon Tessier, SESA Manager: "These latest upgrade installations continue to reinforce the idea that with the fiscal challenges many departments face, upgrading existing signs versus new installations is a much more responsible approach.
"These signs will now provide messaging to commuters along the FDR for many years to come, at a fraction of the cost of installing new equipment"
The FDR sign’s new high-intensity LED’s and energy efficient power controls eliminates the need for expensive cooling systems, dramatically reduces maintenance costs, while providing 30%-80% greater energy efficiency.
