Ottumwa Cuts Energy, Adds Light Show Capabilities at Jefferson Street Viaduct with Color-Changing LED System

“As impressive as the new LED system is both in its performance and its efficiency, I was more impressed with Musco’s customer service and attention to detail–especially for a small community organization like ours. To keep our costs down, the Musco team overcame several logistical challenges to make the new, color-changing LEDs work within the same footprint as the 20-year-old metal halide lamps they replaced.”

      • The city achieved its efficiency goals with the bridge lighting, reducing energy consumption by up to 90 percent compared to the previous HID accent lights.
      • The new lighting delivers reliable and trouble-free operation resulting from its complete system design in 5 Easy Pieces™.
      • The system will generate revenue for the city, with members of the city able to submit requests for colored lights to illuminate the bridge for the night.
      • Ottumwa won’t have to pay any maintenance costs on the lights through the year 2029, as a result of Musco’s long-term warranty covering every part of the system and all labor.
