Streetlights illuminate Montgomery County roadways, bike paths and sidewalks for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. By County law, developers are responsible for providing new streetlights and upgrading existing streetlights (underground-fed and/or overhead-fed) in new developments. Existing residential streets can have lighting installed on a block-by-block or street-by-street basis, if the existing level of lighting does not meet County standards.
