Supervisors Approve LED Streetlight Pilot in Sterling

County supervisors have approved a project to install LED streetlights on six Sterling Boulevard intersections, in part as a pilot for a countywide streetlight program.

The six intersections are all between Rt. 7 and the W&OD Trail, including Greenthorn/Staunton Avenue, Maple Avenue, Holly Avenue, Beech Road, Church Road, and East Frederick Drive. The intersections were selected based on night-time crash data from the Virginia Department of Transportation. The project is expected to cost $214,320, and add close to $3,000 in annual service costs.

The county continues work on a new Countywide LED Streetlight Program.

    I’m with the county supervisors on this one. LED lighting appears to be the wave of the future. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable & offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting. Why not make the switch? Welcome to the 21st Century Loudoun!
