Vail light test continues until Aug. 24

Vail Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – The town of Vail will continue to take public comment on lighting plans for the north and south frontage roads until Aug. 24.

Two lighting sources are under consideration – a high pressure sodium, which is currently used in Vail Village, and a solid-state LED.

There is a test site at the entrance to the Ford Park parking lot and members of the public are asked to stop by and register their opinion. Surveys are provided at each pole location.

The LED light source has potential energy savings and is a relatively new technology when it comes to roadway lighting. The first installation of LED roadway lighting in Colorado was completed this year in Ouray.

The town’s lighting plan should be done in the next six months. New lights will be installed over the next five to 10 years.

For more information visit or call Town Engineer Tom Kassmel at 970-479-2235.
