  1. Information Letter for Proposed Roadway Lighting Improvements Program

    Associated Project(s): 

    On May 11, 2017, the Public Works Department of City of Urbana issued a letter to the residents informing them about the construction of new street lighting that is planned for Illinois Street, Gregory Street, and Oregon Street and is scheduled to start this spring. The project is expected to end in late October 2017. The new streetlights will resemble the streetlights currently on Goodwin Avenue adjacent to the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts except the lamp will be a LED lamp instead of a metal halide lamp as is installed on Goodwin Avenue.  

    The proposed roadway lighting improvements are located along Oregon Street from Mathews Avenue to Lincoln Avenue, Gregory Street from Oregon Street to Illinois Street, and Illinois Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue in the City of Urbana. The City of Urbana will oversee the construction of this project, which is presently being competitively bid.

    The project is expected to run from June through October.  Work will commence on Gregory Street, then move to Illinois Street, and finish on Oregon Street.

  4. Campus map with street and parking lights

    Associated Project(s): 

    On October 28, 2016, Chad Kupferschmid provided Morgan Johnston and Sarthak Prasad with the campus map with all the street and parking lights owned by the campus or the city of Urbana or Champaign. The main purpose of this map was to help with determining the boundary of the campus so that they could recommend which street lights should be preferred for the immediate projects.

  5. Dark Sky compliance information

    Associated Project(s): 

    The International Dark Sky Association (http://darksky.org/fsa/fsa-products/) has a Fixture Seal of Approval on certain products. Any outdoor lighting that is fully shielded, reduces blue light, and uses the least amount of energy to achieve the necessary level of visibility would be good to use on campus.  Outdoor lighting also affects sustainability as a matter of energy efficiency, effects on migratory birds, and the emotional connection to the environment fostered by a dark sky.
