Wood Streets Lighting Project

The utility will begin construction to upgrade the current streetlight system in the historic Wood Streets neighborhood starting in January 2014 with completion in Summer of 2014. Most of the construction will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm. It will take place in the street, and home access will not be required. Impact to existing landscaping will be restored to its original state or protected in place. Construction activities will include the installation of new streetlight standards, cable and conduit and will meet the City’s roadway lighting requirements. In most cases, new streetlights will not be placed in the exact same location as the existing streetlight. The map below shows areas that will receive new streetlights.

RPU values safety, efficiency, reliability, and customer satisfaction. The new streetlight system was designed in coordination with the City’s Cultural Heritage Board to maintain the historic integrity of the existing 90 year old system. The new streetlights will include the latest LED technology improving energy efficiency and service life.
