The Brightway Path was designed as a pedestrian path which has enhanced lighting. People are encouraged to use this path when walking after dark. Bright yellow signs are posted near the sidewalks that are a part of the Brightway Path.
Thompson Woods is an example of an area where lighting is minimal. This area is clearly posted with Brightway Path signs that encourage pedestrians to use adjoining sidewalks that are brightly lit, patrolled more, and are safer.
The Brightway Path is not always the most direct route, however, it is the safest.
