I-264/64 Interchange Lighting Replacement Project
Project at a Glance
Lane Construction Corporation
Several years ago, 28 high-mast interstate lighting units were removed at the I-264/I-64 Interchange because of aging light pole structures. The I-264/I-64 Interchange Lighting Upgrade project will replace the lighting units on both the east and westbound lanes of I-64 and I-264. This project will re-install lighting (23 poles) at the I-264/64 interchange.
Crews began placing light poles in March 2013. The new lights have all of their illumination focused toward the ground reducing light pollution into the upper atmosphere and light trespass beyond the interchange.
A second project is being developed to replace the remaining poles at other interchanges and is scheduled for advertisement in May 2014.
Current Status: All 23 lights in this corridor were illuminated in July 2013, following Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.
