the installation of detector housings shall be in accordance with 506, except 506.05
will not apply. A CMDS in accordance with 502.03 shall be submitted, however,
utilization of the Department provided spreadsheet is not required. Where a portion
of the road is closed or where there is no vehicular traffic, then class A concrete in 280
accordance with 702 may be used. The concrete shall be placed flush with existing
surface and shall be covered with a steel plate during the setting time.

805.09 Loop Wire Detector Installation
