Gotta disagree on the power source. If it's a "road flooded" sensor I'd seal it all in a pipe with some lithium primary cells and service every 5 or 10 years. Add a "test" switch for extra functionality. 

I'd probably add a GPS so that the install procedure could be as simple as "anchor this thing at the level of the road deck". No programming of individual units.
