FHWA Highway Safety Programs


Lighting and control technologies are advancing rapidly. To help transportation agencies make decisions about appropriate roadway lighting, FHWA has published the FHWA Lighting Handbook. To assist in using the Handbook, FHWA has developed several educational modules.

The following links will open each module in a new browser window (your browser must allow pop-up window). The modules were designed to be viewed in order, and will take between 90 and 120 minutes to complete. Workbooks including the content from each module, as well as extended assessment problems, are also provided using the links below.
