The City of Abbotsford is conducting an Light Emitting Diode (LED) Street Lighting Pilot Project.
Many municipalities are making the switch to LED street lighting because it is more economical and provides better light. LED lights use between 40 to 60 percent less energy, leading to cost savings and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. These lights have a lifespan of approximately 20 years, have minimal failure rates and will reduce maintenance and replacement costs. LED lighting is proven to have better light distribution and colour contrast, resulting in improved visibility for drivers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians at night.
The City of Abbotsford is currently testing the lighting in seven areas:
- Anora Drive
- Midas Street
- Old Yale Road
- South Fraser Way east and west of Tretheway Street
- Sunnyside Crescent
- Sunnyside Street
- Sunridge Place
