LED Lights Making their Way to Maryland
Although the lighting retrofit has been ongoing since 2006, residents in motorists in Maryland can expect to see LEDs having more visibility, especially on traffic signals. Since 2006 Maryland's State Highway Administration started replacing old incandescent bulbs in traffic signals with Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lamps at 3,000 locations and the project is 93 percent complete, according to SHA's Charlie Gischlar. We recently, within the last couple of months, finished Prince George's County. (In) Montgomery County, we are 80 percent complete. And we expect to be completed by October or November of this year," Gischlar says. More from WTOP.
