Northern Region LED Lighting Replacement
Project No. NFHWY00277 / 0002407

Project Description:

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration, proposes to replace existing high intensity discharge (HID) luminaires with light emitting diode (LED) street light luminaires on all major DOT&PF owned and maintained roadways in the Northern Region. Construction is anticipated to start summer 2019.

Purpose and Need:

The purpose of this work is to upgrade the highway street lighting systems to use more efficient and cost-effective LED lighting technology. When constructed, this project will:

  • reduce DOT&PF’s maintenance and operations costs,
  • improve highway safety as a result of improved roadway lighting levels and uniformity,
  • provide better operational reliability, and
  • reduce maintenance response effort to repair malfunctioning lights and outages.
