Street Lights Replacement Project Illuminating the City

Post Date:02/21/2019 5:02 PM

Albany, GA (February 21, 2019) – The Light Division is making great strides in the LED street light upgrades throughout the city. As of Friday, February 18, 2019, crews have completed 19.2% of the overall project installing 2,391 new fixtures.

A soft start to the project began in late January 2019, with crews working in all six wards to ensure that all parts of the city would experience the new LED lights. The LED lights are brighter providing for greater illumination and have much less maintenance requirements than the older lights. When the Advanced Metering Information (AMI) system is fully implemented, the lights will be auotmatically monitored for outages and other maintenance issues.

Renee Nickles, Light Superintendent, stated, “These new LED lights do make a difference. If you have traveled down a street this morning with the mist and fog, these lights do stand out and provide more light which in turn increases safety. I can tell the difference in the volume of street light repair requests that we get from our Customers.”
