Lighting the Pathway (May 1, 2015)

UAS Construction Update for 05/01/2015

Lighting the Pathway

UAS will replace the old High Pressure Sodium (HPS) pathway lights with new Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights this summer.  We will be using the same small scale lights that were installed along the Auke Lake Way sidewalk last summer.  Many UAS students, faculty and staff have commented on the inviting atmosphere these lights give the walkways.  These LED light fixtures have a mounting bracket below the LED light which deflects enough light that you can see it from the end of the pathway.  With this type of light fixture, we will see a trail of lights stretched before us and our minds will perceive that the pathway is lighter, and more inviting to walk.  

UAS Pathway Lights installed in 2014

 Path Lights Night 

The Contractor will start next week marking the locations of the new lights and then remove the existing lights beginning later in May.  The new lights will extend from Housing down to Eagan Library as shown on the figure below.  Please note that there will be periods this summer when the pathway will be closed to pedestrian traffic.  Signs and markers will lead the way for detours around the construction zone.  The work will be completed before school starts this coming fall.

Please feel free to  contact me with any questions about this project.
