Industry Standards and Recommendations Guide for Crosswalk Overhead Lighting

We put together this guide to illustrate the current industry recommendations for overhead lighting at mid-block crosswalks using information from two leading authorities, the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).

In it, we cover:

  • How pedestrian visibility is determined
  • How to achieve acceptable light levels at a mid-block crosswalk
  • Calculations you can do to ensure your proposed fixture will meet the FHWA/IES’ recommendations
  • Glare, uniformity, and other important concepts of lighting design

The information contained in this resource is intended for general informational purposes only. Please consult your local or state transportation department for recommendations and/or requirements related to overhead lighting.
