Chapter 1: Introduction to Roadway Lighting 

Chapter 2: Vision and Fundamental Concepts

Chapter 3: Calculations

Chapter 4: Obtrusive Light        

Chapter 5: The Planning and Design Process 

Chapter 6: System Components    

Chapter 7: Standards and Codes         

Chapter 8: Computer Applications      

Chapter 9: Maintenance and Operations

Part 2 – Design   

Chapter 10: Highway and Interchange Lighting    

Chapter 11: Street Lighting     

Chapter 12: Intersections, Roundabouts and Crosswalks   

Chapter 13: At-Grade Railway Crossings         

Chapter 14: Tunnels       

Chapter 15: Toll Plazas

Chapter 16: Off-Roadway Facilities

Chapter 17: Parking Lots and Parking Garages      

Chapter 18: Roadway Sign Lighting

Chapter 19: Temporary and Work Zone Lighting  

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Don McLean

Don McLean is an engineering technician with 40+ years of experience. He is the president of DMD and Associates Ltd., a 50+ person electrical engineering firm specializing in street lighting and traffic signals.

Through his career Don has focused on outdoor street lighting in the transportation sector. Don has been involved with over 5,000 projects including larger P3 transportation projects in the $1B+ range and over 700,000 street lights converted to LED.

Don has authored and co-authored a number of national engineering standards and publications for the IESNA, IMSA, Transportation Association of Canada, FHWA and NCHRP.

Paul Lutkevich

Paul Lutkevich is a Technical Director and Professional Fellow for lighting design at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff.  He has over 30 years experience in design and construction of infrastructure systems including roadways, tunnels, pedestrian facilities, and transit systems.  He is actively involved in the development of national and international standards for outdoor lighting.  Paul was also a member of the US delegation in the FHWA/AASHTO Bilateral Lighting Technology Exchange Program between outdoor lighting experts and international organizations in Europe. He has been involved in research with the FHWA investigating topics concerning lighting and safety, adaptive lighting implementation, visualization techniques, environmental and health impacts of lighting, and context sensitive solutions.  He has written and spoken extensively on the subjects of outdoor lighting including urban lighting, lighting for pedestrians, aesthetic considerations in outdoor lighting, and lighting for safety.  He is a co-author for the Transportation Association of Canada’s outdoor lighting standards which used the latest research from North American and international sources to compile a comprehensive design guide for the outdoor environment.  He is chair of the IES Roadway Standard Practice Sub-Committee.  He also was the lead researcher for the revisions to the FHWA Roadway Lighting Handbook and is lead researcher for the NCHRP Solid State Lighting Guidelines.
