North Carolina DOT Roadway Lighting

NV5 is acting as the Third Party Owner’s Representative for the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) statewide roadway lighting project. The project involves replacing highway, interchange, weigh station, and maintenance site high-intensity discharge lighting with state of the art LED lighting technology.

This is the first state wide LED project of its kind in the nation.

As the third party consultant, NV5 has provided PC project management and technical oversight for NCDOT during the investment grade audit phase and implementation phase, and will be providing technical oversight and review services for the performance period.

We have reviewed existing roadway lighting sites and conditions, provided assistance with developing and defining proper energy baseline methodologies, reviewed current LED lighting technology applications and the test installation performance metrics (luminance and illuminance plots, fixture design, etc.), evaluated outdoor lighting control and management technologies, and assisted in the development of the measurement and verification plan for guaranteed savings.
