Houston Lighting and Electrical Contractor Sheds Light on Westpark Tollway Underpasses

Houston, TX. – November 29, 2012 – Highlights Electrical, an electrical contracting company, has installed energy efficient LED lighting at two Westpark Tollway underpasses. The project was completed under contract with the Westchase District. New clean, bright lights gleam under the Westpark Tollway, at Briarpark and Wilcrest. Completed in February, the new outdoor LED lighting creates a safer environment for pedestrians and bikers.

Located adjacent to METRO bus stops, the LED lighting systems for the underpasses were also designed to make bus riders feel more comfortable when waiting for their respective bus. Irma Sanchez, vice president of projects for Westchase District, also suggested that the new outdoor LED lighting will “make it more convenient for bus riders to get to and from the stops and their destinations.”

Roadway Underpass with LED Lighting

Enhancing the entry points into the Westchase District, the outdoor LED lighting replaced the low-pressure sodium fixtures that illuminated the underpasses for years. The LED lighting system was designed and installed by Houston’s own electrical contracting company, Highlights Electrical. This LED lighting brightens up two critical toll way underpasses, which will hopefully encourage “people to get out of their cars and enjoy more walking and bicycling,” said Sanchez. Moreover, Sanchez reports that she is “pleased” with the new energy efficient lighting.
