Pole Foundation Conduit Requirements

In order to easily accommodate IMSA cable from pullbox to signal faces, Scottsdale now installs two 2-1/2” schedule 40 conduits to all “Q” and “R” pole bases.  In addition, for any pole anticipated as a possible future cell tower site, we add two   2-1/2" sweep stubouts to the back of the pole foundation and mark the foundation with a knotch or line.
