On September 3rd, 2013, when the lighting system with an LED light source turned on for the first time illuminating the new East Span of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge, it was more than a historic moment. It represented three years of dedication, innovation, and customization by the world’s leading visionary in lighting solutions. More than 300,000 drivers who cross the 2.2-mile bridge every day are now enjoying a safer driving experience thanks to the uniform light distribution and virtual absence of glare.
IES San Francisco and Pacific Energy Center are proud to present Jim Berns of Musco Lighting to share the story of developing the customized lighting solution around the evolving LED light source to meet the meticulous performance and aesthetic requirements for the Bay Bridge. The Musco team of engineers built a mock roadway matching that of the bridge to simulate the lighting design and performed several on-site demonstrations and tests to ensure that each of the more than 1,600 light fixtures and 51,500 LEDs were perfectly aimed. And with the revolutionary system in place, total energy consumption is reduced by 50 percent compared to a metal halide system.
