Roadway Lighting Design
Driving or walking on, or across, a roadway is less safe in darkness than in a lighted area, due to the reduced visibility of hazards and pedestrians. Though the number of fatal crashes occurring in daylight is about the same as those that occur in darkness, only 25 percent of vehicle-miles traveled occur at night. For these reasons, roadway lighting design is a critical component of constructing and operating safe roads.
This course provides guidance to engineers concerning the design and application of roadway lighting. It is intended to be a resource for the design and construction community to evaluate potential need, benefits, and applicable references when considering a roadway or street lighting system.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty-five (35) questions to earn 7 PDH credits.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Federal Guidance and Recommendations Regarding Roadway Lighting
- Basic Terms and Concepts Related to Roadway Lighting
- Considerations Concerning Lighting Systems
