Holophane® brand outdoor roadway lighting is being installed for a large highway connecting Florida’s Interstate 4 in Tampa Bay to the Lee Roy Selmon Crosstown Expressway. The interchange is expected to provide more convenient, efficient freeway-to-freeway access to downtown Tampa and the Port of Tampa.
Among the goals for this new roadway: maintain a high level of aesthetic appeal, including enhancements complementing the architectural features of the 7th Avenue overpass in the Ybor City historic district. Helping to create a clean aesthetic appearance for the project is a contemporary styled lighting fixture, the Mongoose®, part of the Acuity Brands Holophane line. The Mongoose fixture provides highly efficient roadway illumination and was selected for its contemporary styling, high performance and easy maintenance.
The project is scheduled to be completed in the middle of 2012. The project completes an important regional link in the Tampa Interstate System and provides an alternative route for commuters traveling south and downtown.
