DELTA evaluated the exterior and interior lighting at the newly expanded Clifton Park Rest Area on the I-87 Adirondack Northway in Upstate New York. The facility, which is open 24 hours a day, has parking, picnic areas, a dog walking area, and a pavilion. Inside the pavilion are a tourist information counter, restrooms, vending machines, and a State Police Station. This publication describes the lighting, discusses the public's reaction to the lighting, and quantifies the energy savings and environmental impact of the lighting.
