A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Why the daytime lighting?

Written March 7th, 2013 by

Remember that North Albany park-and-ride lot the city of Albany recently completed? It’s being used, and it also just got 10 stylish new light fixtures. They look impressive, but I’m wondering why they remain lighted throughout the day. (Councilman Ray Kopczynski found the answer from Public Works and let me know Thursday morning: “Because Park and Ride is built using ODOT specs and contract language, the lamps are required to be on 24 hrs/day for 7 days. This is a required ‘burn’ under the ODOT specs. They’ll switch over to photocell control after the test period.”)
