Ultraviolet Sidewalks

Need a cost cutting solution to supplementing the lighting along the Schuylkill River, or dare I say the Delaware Waterfront?

Pro-Teq of the U.K. developed ultraviolet surfacing that looks like something out of the rainforests of Pandora.

During the day, UV reactive particles absorb light, releasing it at night creating something that looks like bioluminescent grass.

Since the UV reactive particles are essentially manmade gravel, installing it is as simple as paving an asphalt bike trail, or even a gravel trail.
