Roadway lighting eases the task of driving at night by illuminating the pavement to help drivers see the general direction of the roadway, aiding them in seeing structures alongside the roadway more clearly, and enabling them to see areas of the roadway where headlights do not provide adequate light. This module provides an introduction to specifications and types of lighting systems that are available. The module also introduces a procedure for designing a nighttime lighting system in work zones where no formal lighting plan exists. Engineers, designers, and contractor personnel can use this process without the need to be an expert in illumination.
- Understand a system of illumination categories, and associated work zone tasks.
- Select appropriate work zone lighting type, quantity, and configuration
- Apply the basic steps for developing work zone lighting plan
