Brighter nights ahead for Colorado 93 drivers moving between Boulder, Golden – The Denver Post

Drivers on a hazardous stretch of a notoriously dicey highway on the metro area’s west side now have a brighter ride, with new in-pavement LED lights to guide them at night.

The Colorado Department of Transportation recently turned on a series of polycarbonate plastic “pucks” that house small, energy-efficient LEDs — devices that CDOT correlates with a reduction in crashes — along a hilly and curvy 3.7-mile stretch of Colorado 93, between West 64th Parkway and Colorado 72 just west of Arvada.

The lights, which cost between $15,000 and $25,000 per linear mile to install, delineate lanes and shoulders on the highway, which connects Boulder and Golden.

“This particular location was chosen due to it being a major commuting route and the dark, unlighted nature of the roadway,” CDOT operations director Angie Drumm said.
