technology is more efficient than traditional street lights that most people are exposed to, and officials also say that these LED street lights do not require frequent maintenance.
In addition, Durham Transportation staff said that with this new type of fixture, residents near the poles no longer have to worry about strong light entering the home. Bill Judge, who is also the Department of Transportation, said that the street lights would be "direct on the street."
It is understood that the 20,000 street lamps in Durham will be replaced by LED lights, which is part of the cooperation between Durham and Duke Energy. It is estimated that it will take 18 months to install all the LED street lights.
