The findings of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet study, Nighttime Construction Issues, are summarized. The current state of nighttime construction was examined through a survey of nighttime construction practitioners. To determine the feasibility of performing a project at night, the factors that affect night operations are discussed as well as a nighttime project evaluation form. Because lighting is a crucial element of any night project, a new form of lighting technology is briefly discussed. An idea that is slowly gaining favor with transportation departments is outlined-the contractor-supplied work plan. Finally, ideas for improvements in public relations and recommendations for overall nighttime project improvement are discussed.
