LED Street Lighting

By: Sharon Aron Baron

LED lighting provides a true, color-rendering, white light, compared to the yellowish glow of today’s high pressure sodium lamps and as part of Coral Springs pilot LED street light programs, the City will retrofitting several of them starting this week.

Proponents claim this white light improves vision for motorists and pedestrians, allowing for faster, easier recognition of movement along roadways, providing more reaction time. The white light may also promote a more lively, friendly atmosphere, making architecture appear more authentic. Some studies show LED lighting contributes to an enhanced feeling of safety, allowing people to recognize faces and colors more easily. LED lights have been shown to reduce energy consumption up to 50 percent and last longer, resulting in energy and maintenance savings.

Starting on August 19, installation will begin for 12 existing light fixtures on a section of University Drive, between 28th and 31st Streets.

“We would love for our residents to provide us with feedback on the LED street lights,” said Director of Public Works Rich Michaud.
