City Replaces High-Voltage Street Lighting with Energy-Efficient LED Lighting
Throughout the week of March 6 to 13, the Public Works Department will be upgrading 33 high voltage street lighting fixture ballasts and lamps to low voltage, energy-efficient LED lighting. Additionally, the underground 5kv high voltage circuit wiring will be replaced with regular 120 voltage wiring.
While the project is underway, the City is asking residents to keep their porch lights on to illuminate the streets at night. Residents in affected areas will receive a letter notifying them of the planned improvements, along with an energy-efficient 3-pack of LED light bulbs in order to assist in this effort and as a thank you from the City.
These upgrades will be taking place on the 100 block of Victoria Avenue, 200 block of Lewis Avenue, 200 block of La Cruz Avenue, 200 block of Taylor Boulevard, 200 block of Hillcrest Boulevard, and 200 block of Barclay Avenue. This project is funded by a Capital Investment Program (CIP) Street Program that is dedicated to converting 5kv streetlights to energy-efficient bulbs.
