Washington University will conduct a demonstration of the proposed pedestrian lighting on Skinker.

On Monday, August 11 they will place two poles on the east side of Skinker near Westminster, approximately 40 feet apart.  At 8:30 p.m. they will place a fixture on one of the poles and at approximately 9:15 p.m. they will move the fixture to the other pole.  The demonstration will conclude at 10:00 p.m. This will allow the community to see the light in two conditions, at an intersection and mid-block.

On Tuesday, August 12 they will place two poles on the west side of Skinker near Westminster, approximately 40 feet apart.  At 8:30 p.m. they will place a fixture on one of the poles and at approximately 9:15 p.m. they will move the fixture to the other pole.  The demonstration will conclude at 10:00 p.m. This will allow the community to see the light in front of one of the Parkview entrance gates and also how it impacts a single family home.

Community members are encouraged to come out and take a look.  Lighting consultants will be available to answer questions. For more information, contact Cheryl Adelstein, Director of Community Relations and Local Government Affairs at cadelstein@wustl.edu.
