    • “Gateway To Heritage”
      TSU College of Engineering, Technology and Computer Science
      Conceptual Design
      Spring 2010
    • Problem
      I-40 Underpass on Jefferson St.
      The overpass that crosses over Jefferson Street creates division amongst the area.
      The bridge creates a dark, unattractive area for the community.
    • Objective
      Provide a safe and secure environment for pedestrians and tourists to celebrate the history and culture of Jefferson street.
      Catalyze the economy and life on Jefferson street for the community.

    • Lighting and Power Supply
      • LED lights were chosen for the Billy Jean and the lighted walkway. These lights will be secured in the ground causing no hindrance to maintenance vehicles.
      • These lights can be purchased from Radiant Lighting Company to light the columns.
      • Color specifications
    • Columns
      Each column under the bridge will be surrounded by 4 LED lights, which will be located at the cardinal points (N,S,E,W).
      Each light will project up to 30 feet high
      The fixtures for these lights can come in white, amber, blue, green and also red. We will use different colors for each column to add color to the environment.
      These lights are more efficient and last longer than regular lights, lasting for 80,000-100,000 hours.
    • Walkway lightingCrossover XIG In Ground Light
    • Walkway lightingLight Specs
      Expected Life:
      80,000 hrs
      Housing:
      Corrosion and Immersion resistant
      Field proven to last 20 years with no maitenance
      Lens Temperature stays cool
      Electrical : 120VAC 50/60hz input
      Adjustable lighting tilt
      1644 lumen output per 22 watt input
      About 75 lumen/watts
      Flood and spot light choices
    • Walkway lighting Manufacturer Choice
      We looked at products from several manufacturers. However, LSI Industries really stood out with their Crossover XIG In-ground light product.
      What we looked for in a manufacturer:
      Proven track record
      Quality customer support
    • Walkway lighting Placement
      Staggered pattern along the walkway
      Shape would look similar to a series of W’s
      10 degree tilt inwards to the walkway.
      9ft apart
      Flood setup for wider beam
      3 lights placed in the semi-circular monument section
      Spotlight setup
      3 lights in each wall of the amphitheater, tilted towards the stage
      10/10/5 degree tilts
      Flood setup
    • Walkway lightingCost and Power Consumption
      Number of lights needed to light 760ft pathway, monuments and amphitheater:
      93
      $750 per light
      $69,750 (LED is expensive!)
      Power Consumption:
      2.05 kW
      Annual Energy cost: $1,408.96
    • Walkway lighting Cost Comparison
      Similar metal halide light costing $550.00
      60 watt
      Initial cost: $51,150
      Difference: -$18,600
      Annual Energy Cost: $3,842.61
      Difference: +$2433.65
      7.6 years to make up the cost of initial investment due to energy savings
    • Energy Harvesting
      Solar Panels will be placed in the grass across the site to preserve energy for the Jefferson underpass
      These panels will help lower the amount of power used and make the area more eco-friendly.
    • Solar Panel
    • Acoustic Wall
      The acoustic wall will help to condense the noise
      level from the overpass as well as the music that will be played.
      The company we will purchase the wall from is Acoustical Surfaces, Inc.
      • Impervious to Rodents, Insects, & Fungus• Graffiti Easily Removed• Impervious to Rain, Snow, Ice, and Sleet• Non-Corrosive• Will Not Rust, Rot or Stain• Height Up To 35 Feet• Easily Repaired or Replaced• Easily Installed
      FEATURES:
      • Sound Absorbing• Lightweight• Attractive • Non-Reflective• Non-Conducting• Non-Magnetic• Inexpensive• Many Colors to Choose From
      • Strong & Durable
    • The Wall
    • Outdoor Speakers
      Speaker specifications
      Outdoor speakers will be evenly dispersed around the plaza playing “Jazz” creating a more pleasant experience.
    • Rock Speakers
    • Concluding Remarks
      The project aims to create a well planned landscape renovation that will uplift the area’s economy and improve the quality of life for its citizens. Our time and dedication has resulted in a design solution that will positively impact the surrounding neighborhood and create the foundation for restoring pride to the Historical Jefferson St.
