Section 2: Continuous LightingAnchor: #i999540
There are two kinds of standard agreements for continuous lighting systems — the “100 Percent Agreement” and the “50-50 Agreement.” Which agreement is used depends on whether TxDOT bears the entire cost of the system or shares the expense with a municipality.Anchor: #i999550
100 Percent Agreement
The 100 percent agreement provides that TxDOT assumes the total cost of design and installation of the continuous lighting system, and that the local government assumes all cost of the subsequent operation and maintenance.

There are two versions of the 100 Percent Agreement, identified as follows:
- SC(100) – CMO (100)(B) — referred to as the “100% Blanket Agreement”
- SC(100) – CMO (100)(SL) — same as above except restricted to specific limits (hence the “SL”) on the highway.
