901.3 Lighting to be Adjusted at State Expense and Operated and Maintained at the Expense of the Local Political Subdivision
MoDOT bears the cost for the first adjustment of existing lighting owned or leased by the local political subdivision, on roads being widened or reconstructed and were lighted prior to taking the road into the state highway system. Thereafter, the local political subdivision will be required to bear the adjustment costs.
MoDOT also bears the cost for (1) the replacement or adjustment of existing lighting owned or leased by the local political subdivision on non-state owned streets MoDOT modifies by construction, (2) lighting on an outer roadway that is a readjustment or replacement of an existing lighted road, or (3) lighting for traffic circulation on lighted streets dead-ended by highway construction.
The lighting system is designed to MoDOT's current standards. The operation and maintenance is at the expense of the local political subdivision. The local political subdivision must indemnify and save the state harmless from any claims of the owner of the lights being leased to the local political subdivision.
Lighting on state right of way by permit will be relocated and upgraded to current design standards at the expense of the local political subdivision. In this way, lighting on state right of way by permit is treated similar to utilities since the local political subdivision constructed the lighting on land belonging to MoDOT. It is the district's responsibility to notify local political subdivisions of required adjustments. The lighting negotiations are handled similar to other utility adjustments on the project.
