My thoughts on your question for #3 are a satellite TV dish antenna mounted on something behind the trolley belonging to one of the properties on that street.

The small cylindrical object approx one foot above the roll sign might a transmitter for traffic signal preemption.
The Opticom system that 3M fielded used visible light pulsed strobes as transmitters to trigger preemption.
