Huron St project

The Huron Street renovation project will include “Dark Skies compliant” light fixtures — see peoplefriendlystreets.org: Design Concepts June 1, 2018, p. 63.  The cobra lights will have a second, smaller cobra on the sidewalk side for pedestrians.  Both are meant to be full cutoff.
