QUESTION 1When are street lights installed?

The amount of traffic, or ADT (Average Daily Traffic) on KDOT’s roadway system is the main consideration when determining the need for lighting. Requests can be made through the local KDOT office, or The Bureau of Traffic Safety and Technology at 785-296-3618. These requests will be reviewed using crash data analysis in addition to the ADT to help determine the need for lighting. KDOT does allow local governing bodies to install lighting on KDOT's right-of-way by obtaining a permit from the local office. KDOT does not have jurisdiction over local and county roads.
