Roadway and Street Lighting
Roadway and street lights
are used to produce quick, accurate and comfortable visibility at night for vehicle drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. They are a category of infrastructure lighting systems
installed on freeways, express ways, residential roads, urban streets, bridges, ramps and tunnels to provide an enhanced visual environment for people to safely use the road systems during hours of darkness. Roadway lighting
is provided for roads such as freeways and expressways that are designed to service vehicular traffic only. Street lighting
is provided for roads accommodating both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. See Pedestrian Scale Lighting
for manufacturers of street and area light fixtures installed on bikeways, walkways, sidewalks, and squares in residential, landscaped and urban environments.
