Schreder Partners with the MTA to Re-Light the Queens-Midtown Tunnel
Omnistar and LEDNova Fixtures Will Re-Light the Tunnel
Get Ready for a Better Ride Through the Tunnel
The Queens-Midtown Tunnel is about to get much better lighting thanks to Schreder and NYX Hemera. The LED upgrade is a response to Superstorm Sandy and part of the MTA’s plan for resilience. A combination of OMNIstar and LEDNova fixtures were selected. The two-thousand or so fixtures being used in the tunnel will be controlled by a NYX Hemera Tunnel Lighting Addressable Control System (TLACS) allowing for automatic tuning of light output at every portion of the tunnel based on current daylighting conditions.
We’re excited to be part of this project, we’ll be sure to issue updates as the installation progresses!
