Project location:  SEPULVEDA BLVD BETWEEN CENTURY AND IMPERIAL HWY (LENGTH:  0.4 miles)

     

     

The Sepulveda Tunnel is a 2080 foot-long divided tunnel under an LAX Airport runway. The tunnel was built in 1953, and is a part of State Highway 1 which is one of the busiest major highways in the City of Los Angeles.  The tunnel was prevoiusly illuminated with a High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting system.

     
     
     
General Description of Project: The prevoius High Pressure Sodium lighting system in the tunnel was outdated and subject to serious maintenance problems. The project replaced the existing lighting fixtures and the lighting control system with a state of the art LED lighting system. In addition to the new lighting and control system the walls of the tunnel were power washed and painted.

Number of Units: 572 new LED luminaires were installed. Each of these units will be monitored and controlled via a remote monitoring system.
