University Hill - Pedestrian Lighting

University Hill - Pedestrian Lighting



Pedestrian-scale lighting using full-spectrum “white light” LED lamps will be installed along key pedestrian corridors on University Hill. 


Pedestrian-scale LED lighting will be installed on 14’ poles at 70’ to 90’ spacing. The existing vehicle-scale lighting on 30’ poles will be supplemented (and in some cases replaced) with new energy-efficient LED fixtures. The lighting improvements will occur on the following corridors:

  • 11th Street from Arapahoe to E College avenues
  • E College Avenue from 10th to 13th streets
  • 12th Street from E College to Aurora avenues
  • 13th Street from E College to Euclid avenues
  • 18th Street from Broadway to Baseline Road
