LED Streetlight Conversion Project Updates
On or about January, 22 2018, crews working on behalf of the City will begin changing out the HPS fixtures on every city owned and maintain streetlight pole, and replacing them with the new LED fixtures. Work within residential areas will be completed during daylight working hours, and work occurring on larger ‘arterial’ streets (McDowell & Avondale Blvd) will occur overnight to avoid disrupting routine traffic.
Construction will generally occur in a quadrant fashion (using the Agua Fria and I-10 as dividers), and will begin in the Northwest corner of the city, moving the the South West quadrant, then the South East, and finally concluding in the North East. (Estimated timeline below.) The project will be substantially complete, barring unforeseen circumstances, by May of 2018.
As of May 15, 2018, the contractor installing the LED Streetlights on behalf of the City has substantially completed all four quadrants of the City on schedule. Lights are currently being converted at the intersections across the City, and a total of 7,657 of the 8,000 lights have been replaced thus far City-wide. Rusted light poles are also being replaced, and 44 of the 179 rusted poles have been completed to date.
This project should be completed in the summer of 2018.
