The 2019 Bond Program provides funding for the design and construction of street lights along major thoroughfares that carry a significant amount of pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic, and where street lights could not be added during construction or reconstruction of the roadway project.
The City will prioritize street lighting projects with an emphasis on larger unlit or under lit thoroughfares.
By constructing street lights along major corridors, pedestrians and cyclists are more likely to be visible to motorists under a continuous corridor of illumination, particularly on roadways with higher rates of speed. Additionally, increased or improved lighting can also improve cross street traffic visibility for motorists.
The street lighting projects are anticipated to occur in the latter half of the current six-year bond issuance schedule. This estimate is highly dependent upon the timing of each year's bond issuance and is subject to shifting within the six-year schedule.
