Street Lighting Overhaul in Detroit

March 4, 2014

Detroit neighborhoods will soon be getting a long-awaited overhaul of its antiquated street lighting system.


Under a new $160 million plan approved by the Public Lighting Authority of Detroit, the relamping of all neighborhoods in the city with LED lights is scheduled to happen within 18 months, finishing by the third quarter of 2015.


The revised plan also prunes the total number of street and alley lights in Detroit from 88,000 to about 50,000, or about 4,000 more lights than were called for under the authority’s earlier plan. The new LED lights will be 150 watts, or more than twice as bright as the high-pressure sodium fixtures now in widespread use.


An estimated 40% of Detroit’s street lights were not working last year.
