COST EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS OF ROADWAY LIGHTING SYSTEMS

THE RESULTS OF A COST-EFFECTIVENESS STUDY COMPARING ALTERNATIVE ILLUMINATION CONFIGURATIONS ARE PRESENTED. MANY ILLUMINATION CONFIGURATIONS ARE PRESENTED. MANY ILLUMINATION CONFIGURATIONS WERE ELIMINATED BY CONSIDERATIONS OTHER THAN THOSE DISCUSSED. ONLY FIVE OF THE MORE "INTERESTING" CONFIGURATIONS ARE CONSIDERED. THE REPORT IS BROKEN INTO SECTIONS THAT DISCUSS EFFECTIVENESS CRITERIA AND THE FIVE ALTERNATIVES CONSIDERED; ACCIDENT INFORMATION USED IN COMPARING THE FIVE ALTERNATIVES; AND COSTS OF ILLUMINATION UNITS AND ACCIDENTS INVOLVING MOTOR VEHICLES AND ILLUMINATION UNITS. THE FINAL SECTION IS THE COST- EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS, INTENDED TO SHOW WHICH ILLUMINATION SCHEME IS PREFERABLE FOR HIGHWAYS WITH DIFFERENT NUMBERS OF LANES. /FHWA/
