Street lights have been added on Hillcrest between Rolater and 720. That's great. But when will they be turned on so we can get some use from them?

David,

The City met with CoServ and TXU two weeks ago to coordinate the installation of transformers and meters to provide electric service to the new streetlights on Hillcrest. Based on other streetlight projects we have completed recently, we expect it will be at least 1-2 months before they can deliver, install, and energize the necessary equipment.

I noticed the streetlights on Hillcrest are working. That's fantastic news! I also noticed that they were on yesterday at 5PM and today at 8AM. Excuse the irony of this question (being that we've waited impatiently for the lights to be turned on), but do you know if they will constantly stay on during the daytime?

Steve,

For the first 48-72 hours after the streetlights are energized they go through a "burn-in" period during which they are left on constantly. After this period they are switched to normal automatic operation.

I have noticed that the streetlights on Hillcrest from Canoe north are not working. Is there a problem?

We are still waiting for the electric company to install the electric meter for the streetlights north of Canoe.

Regarding the new street lights:

1. On Ohio, at least half are burned out. Considering the length of time, is there a defect in the lights and when will they be repaired.

2. The lights on Hillcrest look great!

3. Why are the brightness of the ligts completely different comparing Ohio, Hillcrest, and Coit? The lights on Ohio do not light up anything at all. Hillcrest looks very nice. Coit is between Hillcrest and Ohio in brightness. This makes no sense as there are less houses on Coit and it is a wider road.

Brian,

1. The lights on Ohio are still under warranty from the Contractor. We have directed them to make repairs as soon as possible.

2. Thank you!

3. We are investigating this situation with the Contractors and Suppliers for these jobs. All three projects have the same specification for the streetlights, so there shouldn’t be any noticeable difference. It may simply be a result of the “burn-in” that the lights experience: the Hillcrest lights are the brightest since they are new, while the Ohio lights are dimmest since they are older.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thanks,

When will the street lights on Hillcrest from Promenade (south of Huntington) to Main be completed?

CoServ installed the meter Tuesday afternoon. The lights should be turned on today.

Is there an update on the burned out lights, brightness variations, etc?

Brian,

We have made a second request to the contractor to fix the broken lights on Ohio. At this time they have not been able to provide a schedule for the repairs.

We are aware of several potential reasons for the variation in the brightness of the streetlights on Ohio, Hillcrest, and Coit. Until the lights on Ohio are fixed and the lights on Hillcrest have been allowed to burn-in for several months, we will be unable to accurately analyze the potential reasons.

Thanks,
