Below: Computer rendering of the new booth.

Below: The existing foundation of the demolished booth. The footprint of the new booth is larger therefore a new foundation will be poured that will follow more closely the outline of the cobblestone except for the back of the rectangular-shaped booth will extend past the current location of the gate.

Below: Balsawood model of steel safety cage design.
According to FEMA guidelines, a direct crash into the steel cage by a vehicle (that bypasses the bollards) will sustain stops a 2,430-pound vehicle moving at 40 miles per hour. That is comparable to a C40 barrier rating. The booth is also protected by five bollards. The bollards have a K4 / ASTM M30 rating considered Medium Security. K4 rated bollards stop a 15,000-pound vehicle moving 30 miles per hour.

Today the major players met in the Village Hall to coordinate the new footing slab and the steel frame.

Above: Post-meeting we gathered at the existing slab to double-check vehicle clearance, water runoff, and drainage coming down Tuxedo Road toward Rt. 17.

Above: Finally, we met at Jody’s warehouse to review the steel cage configuration. This picture of the base of the bullet-proof steel cage gives you a good idea of the size of the interior of the booth. The booth can accommodate two officers comfortably.

Above: Here we are confirming the dimensions and the framing for the handicap door.

Above: Jody shows us the steel plates and tubing that will make up the exterior framing.
